Paediatric Eye Diseases

The domain of Pediatric eye diseases/pediatric ophthalmologists’ deals with the vision care of children. It is very important to identify and rectify the vision-related issues in children in the initial stage since the visual system is in a developing phase and the eyes are very sensitive even towards minute dust particles.

 Pediatric eye specialists work towards vision correction among children via therapies, medication, and complex eye surgeries. Pediatric eye surgeons pay closer attention to correct functionally, as well as, structurally affected vision problems, including Cosmesis.

Children eye treatment

How is the eye of the child different?

It is a well-known fact that Children eyes are very different from adults, but why & how? Well, the main reason is that it is still in the development phase which makes their eyes, visual disorders, brain eye coordination and visual needs entirely different from the adults. They are far away from fully developed eye-brain coordination. Other reasons are:
1. Underdeveloped brain eye connection: Any deprivation in the nascent stage if not treatment might remain incorrect in future leading to amblyopia (lazy eye). Even vision correcting glasses might not be very effective in future.
2. Children’s eyes are prone to a set of eye tumours and malignancies like retinoblastoma that only target this age group
3. Increased screen time due to TV, Computer games, and video games raised the threat of pediatric eye diseases  
4. Outdoor games make children prone to allergies and trauma
5. Premature births lead to prolonged stay of the baby in nurseries which put these newborn babies at risk of Retinopathy of Premature (RoP). It can be vision threatening for the baby.
6. Early age malnutrition might hit the kids with a ‘Vitamin-A’ deficiency which can develop pediatric eye diseases such as corneal ulcers, dry eyes, blindness, etc.

What Are The Symptoms And Signs Of Eye Problems In Children?

1. Redness of eyes, itching, or watery eyes
2. Any misalignment in the eyes or squint eyes
3. Any hereditary/family history of eye disorder might include dependency on vision correcting glasses or refractive errors. This can be passed from one generation to another hence must be detected at an early age
4. A problem in reading the black/whiteboard in the schools.
5. A problem in reading, identifying farther objects, or reading smaller font size
6. Frequent headaches, recurrent eye infections, watering eyes, dryness, or eye rubbing
7. Injury on the head or eyes
