Pediatric Ophthalmologist

Parents looking for the best pediatric ophthalmologist in Bangalore should know that pediatric ophthalmology is a subspecialty of general ophthalmology. Since it takes around ten years for the eyes to fully develop and be able to notice finer details, children's eyes are substantially different from those of adults. As a result, the diagnostic technique, the treatment plan, and the way a child's eye responds to the treatment are all unique, specific, and kid-friendly. A healthy eye and strong connections between the eye and the brain are necessary for optimal vision. As a result, any problem that affects a child's vision needs to be treated as soon as possible. The pediatric ophthalmologist at My Vision Eye Clinic is committed to giving kids the best possible eye treatment.

Since young children can't communicate their difficulties and are frequently impatient with the demands of treatment, pediatric ophthalmologists are needed for this. Children with eye disorders are treated at My Vision Eye Clinic, Sarjapur Road using specialized tools and therapies. Over 5000+ patients examined and treated by our specialist. We see about kids up to the age of fifteen each day. For the most successful treatment of pediatric eye issues, our pediatric ophthalmologist, Dr. Rinku, recommends a combination of eye medications, exercises, patching, glasses, and surgery.

At My Vision Eye Clinic, common pediatric eye conditions are treated:

Although the causes of pterygium include

1. Congenital eye illnesses include nasolacrimal duct blockage (or NLD blockage), which causes eye watering, congenital cataract, and Ptosis (drooping of the eyelids). Because of a blocked tear duct, newborns and younger infants frequently have some matting in their eyes and may cry excessively.

2. Children who have strabismus or squint have eyes that are turned in opposite directions. Double vision, eye strain, pain, and headaches could result from it if it is not treated in a timely manner. Patching and eyewear could be used as treatments for minor conditions. Again, the optimal period for treatment is early childhood.

3. Pediatric Cataract- The clouding of the eye's lens, or cataract, can impair vision. Although a cataract can develop in one or both eyes. Most people think that cataracts only affect adults. However, children can also develop cataracts, which, if left untreated, can result in amblyopia or permanent blindness.

4. Refractive errors: For youngsters with poor vision, therapy options include eye exercises, glasses, and eye drops. Retinopathy of prematurity, retinoblastoma, pediatric glaucoma, leukocoria (White Reflex), and pediatric cataract are among the other illnesses treated at My Vision Eye Clinic, Sarjapur Road.

What is the right time?

The right time to schedule an appointment with a Pediatric ophthalmologist to have your child's eyes checked is if your child frequently complains of headaches, strains while reading a book or blackboard, bends toward the computer, mobile device, or television, or if your newborn was born prematurely, has cross eyes, doesn't pay attention to movements around, and has white coloured lenses. In My Vision Eye Clinic, we will examine your child's eyes and determine the issue. If the child does not need cross-consultation, the initial consultation will be about 1-2 hours; if you do, it might last up to 5 hours. Our pediatric ophthalmologist Dr. Rinku will decide the best course of action for your child during your appointment.
