A Lifetime of Healthy Vision Starts Now

Correcting vision issues early through pediatric ophthalmology can give your child the opportunity to thrive. Our ophthalmology team has experience treating patients of all ages and needs at our trusted Rockland County, NY, ophthalmology practice. We pride ourselves on educating both parents and children on how to protect eye health and prevent childhood eye conditions.

When Should Eye Care for Children Begin?

Our pediatric ophthalmology specialist recommends bringing your child in to either our Garnerville or West Nyack, NY, office for their first eye exam around age three. This is when a child is typically able to identify simple pictures on an eye chart. An additional appointment is recommended when the child reaches kindergarten. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye problems in children is critical in order to prevent any disruption to normal visual development.  

Reasons for Ophthalmology Treatment from Dr. Leen

Parents should always make sure to set aside time to take their child to routine ophthalmology exams. This is especially important if their medical history includes: 


Premature Birth


Squinting


Fails a Vision Test


Juvenile Diabetes or Arthritis


Family History of Eye Disease

Eye Conditions in Children

Dr. Leen, our Garnerville, NY, pediatric ophthalmologist, can diagnose and treat these eye conditions and more:

  • Strabismus, or crossed eyes
  • Blocked tear ducts
  • Amblyopia, or a lazy eye
  • Muscle weakness or issues

In addition, some children may also be at risk of developing cataracts or glaucoma. Some children are born with these conditions, while other children can develop them at a young age. In cases of strabismus or amblyopia, eye patching therapy or surgery may sometimes be required for treatment.
