Pediatric ophthalmology is a fascinating field, although it may be distressing at times due to the difficulty of examining a youngster. While all ophthalmologists have some training in child eye conditions, pediatric ophthalmologists have more expertise and experience diagnosing and treating common pediatric eye conditions. Pediatric ophthalmologists are professionals that specialize in inspecting, diagnosing, and treating eye problems in neonates, children, and adolescents. Pediatric ophthalmologists are both surgical and medical specialists because they undertake eye surgeries on children.
Strabismus is a condition in which neither eye lines up in the same direction. As a result, they are not looking at the same thing at the same time. "Crossed eyes" is the most prevalent kind of strabismus. The condition could be present on a regular basis or only on occasion. It can cause amblyopia (lazy eyes) and loss of depth perception if it is present for a long-time during childhood.
