Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can cause vision loss and blindness by damaging your optic nerve. Most treatments involve lowering your eye pressure to help slow the disease. Depending on your condition, our specialists may prescribe medication or perform laser surgery to help fluid drain from your eye.

Exams and Screenings

We provide comprehensive eye exams that assess how well your child sees (visual acuity) and whether your child’s eye muscles are working correctly (ocular motility). We also perform screening exams for children who, because of family history or medical conditions, have an increased risk of vision problems. Our goal is to detect problems as early as possible when treatment can be most effective, and to prevent vision loss, all in a child-friendly environment.

Adult Care: Strabismus

Pediatric ophthalmologists are experts in treating misaligned eyes (strabismus) and double vision in adults, in part because these physicians have so much experience treating these conditions in children. Depending on the cause of your misalignment, treatment options could include eye realignment surgery, glasses, or prism correction.

Services for Children with Special Needs

Our pediatric ophthalmologist has extensive experience working with children who have neurodevelopment disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, hearing impairment, and speech delays. These children may have an increased likelihood of developing eye problems, so high-quality vision care can be critical.
