Pediatric Ophthalmology | OLOL Children's Hospital

Pediatric Ophthalmology

Eye check-ups should be routine in the medical care of your children. Our specialists treat the most common childhood sight problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. They also administer eye exams, and consult and perform procedures such as cataract removals.

Strabismus, misalignment of the eyes, is one of the most common is eye problems in children affecting approximately four percent of children under the age of six. Our pediatric ophthalmologists specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of pediatric eye disease from strabismus and to more rare diseases such as child Glaucoma.
