The Pediatric Ophthalmology Department at Dr. Om Parkash Eye Institute provides comprehensive eye care tailored specifically for children.
Children’s eyes undergo a unique process of growth and development distinct from that of adults. The cornerstone of good vision lies in ensuring the healthy progression of eye development and robust connections between the eyes and the brain. It’s vital for every child to have a thorough eye check-up before they begin school. Some eye problems like Refractive Error, Amblyopia, Cataract (unilateral/ bilateral) might not be easy to diagnose unless checked early. Younger children especially those under 5 years old or children with special needs are more susceptible to these issues, and they might not express their discomfort clearly. That’s why it’s important for children in this age group to have regular eye check-ups. If there’s a family history of eye problems, early screening is even more important.
The establishment of this department stemmed from a profound recognition that children’s eye problems necessitate unique diagnostic and treatment approaches, along with specialized eye care professionals, well-versed in catering to the needs of children. Additionally, it was driven by a sincere commitment to combat the alarmingly high rates of vision impairments among children in our country.
