Pediatric Ophthalmology

The Pediatric Ophthalmologist at Rockland Eye Physicians offers a complete spectrum of eye care services tailored to our younger patients, from basic eye examinations to advanced treatment of ocular medical problems. Children may suffer from unique eye conditions including strabismus (crossed eyes), amblyopia (lazy eye) and blocked tear ducts to name just a few. Children who were premature at birth need to be screened for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and are at greater risk for certain eye problems than the general population. Our Pediatric Ophthalmologist is specially trained in pediatric eye diseases and creates a warm and comfortable relationship with your child. Our pediatric service is experienced at caring for children with special needs such as those with autism, Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, cognitive or physical delays and other genetic or congenital issues. We also treat many children with ocular inflammation as a result of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
