High Impact Journals In Pediatric Ophthalmology

pediatric ophthalmologist may be a medical and surgical doctor (an Eye MD) who graduated from school of medicine and focuses on the care of children’s eyes. All ophthalmologists have training in children’s eye disorders, but the pediatric ophthalmologist has additional training, experience, and expertise in examining children, and has the best knowledge of possible conditions that affect the pediatric patient and his/her eyes. Neurologic development of vision occurs up until approximately age 12 years. Misalignment of the eyes (strabismus), uncorrected refractive error (myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism), and asymmetry of refractive error (anisometropia) between the 2 eyes can negatively affect this development and cause amblyopia (“lazy eye”). If these conditions are diagnosed and treated early, good vision can develop and may be maintained. Certain diseases elsewhere within the body, like diabetes, can affect the eyes, and therefore the pediatric ophthalmologist addresses these, as well. Prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses. Amblyopia (“lazy eye”) therapy including glasses, patching and pharmacologic treatment. Topical and or/systemic therapy for eye infections, chalazia, glaucoma, blocked tear ducts, and inflammation on the attention or within the eye. Medicines include antibiotics, antivirals and steroids. Probe and Irrigation for congenital duct obstruction (blocked tear duct).Excision of chalazia.Eye muscle surgery for strabismus.
