Pediatric ophthalmology deals with a special set of problems with children’s eye health. Some of the most common issues are quite different from adult ophthalmology. These include the detection and treatment of “lazy eye” or amblyopia which may include dealing with a “wandering” eye or crossed eyes. Many problems with the eyes and vision that occur in children as well as adults need to be treated differently in children. This is especially true of some types of eye infections and tear drainage problems. This is why there is a subspecialty in pediatric ophthalmology. Intermountain Eye and Laser Centers provides this specialized care for your child’s eye heath.
