Pediatric Ophthalmology

When it comes to coping with an eye issue, children, unlike adults, require extra care and attention. The pediatric ophthalmology services of Akbar Eye Hospital are best in class when it comes to providing the finest care for children's eye disorders, whether simple or complicated. Our well-experienced specialists use cutting-edge surgical equipment to provide the needed diagnosis and treatment, all under one roof.

Every child should get a full eye checkup at least once before starting school. Conditions like Refractive Error and Amblyopia might go undiagnosed if not screened precisely at a young age. Young children under five are especially sensitive to these issues since they cannot articulate themselves, and thus, they need regular eye exams.

Our Pediatric Ophthalmology Services

Our Pediatric Ophthalmology Services Are:

Pediatric Refractive Errors Evaluation

Children with refractive error need regular assessment and prescription adjustment of glasses due to eye growth. Precise evaluation of refractive error in children is done with retinoscopy.

Pediatric Cataract Surgeries Under General Anaesthesia

Pediatric cataract surgery is performed to clear the visual axis, and afterward, visual rehabilitation is performed. Children's surgery varies from adult surgery, as they have reduced corneal and scleral stiffness, extremely elastic anterior capsule, soft lens, and a well-formed vitreous.

Pediatric Squint Evaluation and Surgical Management

Squint refers to an eye condition where eyes are not aligned in the same direction. Squint correction is a highly specialised procedure performed by our pediatric eye experts and is a popular therapy for resolving decreased vision, depth perception, double vision, and difficulty reading.

Amblyopia(Lazy Eye) Management

Amblyopia occurs when there is a breakdown in how the brain and eye work together, the affected eye is unable to focus and sends wrong image signals to the brain. Patching exercise is used to treat amblyopia in children below ten.
