Children and adults with eye muscle problems often see a pediatric ophthalmologist. Ocular disorders, some which may not be obvious, can be identified and treated, even in the first days of life. Children experience a variety of eye problems, many quite distinct and unique from those seen in adults. Pediatric Ophthalmologists undergo special training to identify and manage these. Pediatric ophthalmologists are qualified to manage ocular problems using glasses,medication, and eye surgery.
We also specialize in the treatment of Adult ocular misalignments and double vision. Treatments include identifying the many possible underlying causes, which may include thyroid eye muscle disease, vascular insufficiency and myasthenia gravis. Therapies can include optical corrections, prisms, and eye muscle surgery.
