Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus

There are a number of different eye diseases and diseases that can affect babies and children. Some common eye problems in children include amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus and nasolacrimal duct obstruction (the watery eye).

Early detection is the key to successful treatment, which is why frequent eye tests for children are so important. If these tests detect any issues, they can be seen by a paediatric ophthalmologist of our center. Initial appointments for children can take 60-90 minutes.

Amblyopia often known as ‘lazy eye’, is an early childhood eye disorder where the child’s vision does not develop properly. It usually occurs in one eye, but it can occur in both. Amblyopia affects approximately 4% of children.
