Paediatric Ophthalmology

The Department of Paediatric Ophthalmology at Trinity Super Speciality Eye Hospital provides ace-class treatment exclusively for children.

Our Eye Care has a dedicated team of Paediatric Eye Specialists and Surgeons to treat children with various eye disorders. The eye condition is comparatively different from the prevailing condition in youth, adults, and the elderly. To provide Comprehensive Eye Treatment, our hospital is equipped with the latest equipment to diagnose and treat children with eye disorders. We have proficient Eye Doctors who are specialized in providing treatment for Refractive Errors, Strabismus, Amblyopia, Chalazion, Pediatric Cataract, and Pediatric Glaucoma.

The prevalence of eye disorders has been observed since the child was born. Deficiency and malnutrition during the development stage are the leading causes of Pediatric Eye Illnesses. Cataracts and Glaucoma are eye conditions that are congenital disorders. The eyes are the vital part that influences the growth stage of every individual, from newborns to the elderly. The deterioration of eye health affects the learning phase during childhood, which influences every developmental stage.

Paediatric Eye Treatment at Trinity

The treatment methods and procedures significantly vary from the Eye Treatment that is provided to adults. Our Eye Hospital has advanced facilities to diagnose prevalent and congenital eye conditions in children. We follow international standard treatment procedures that help in result-proven recovery. Our Paediatric Eye Specialists have proven experience in diagnosing and treating eye conditions ranging from mild to severe at different stages of disease advancement.

Paediatric Eye Condition

Squint Eye

It is an eye condition where both eyes are not aligned. When sighting an object, both eyes see the object in a completely different direction that is opposite to each other. Hence, the power of the eye will be in one eye. The impairment of eye muscles and extraocular muscles is the primary reason behind the progression of the strabismus eye condition. The condition is classified into four categories:

  • Hypertropia: It is a Squint Eye condition that is observed when one of the eyes turns upwards.
  • Hypotropia: It is an eye disorder where one of the eyeballs turns downward.
  • Esotropia: The eye condition is determined by when one of the eyes turns inward and the other eye concentrates on the object.
  • Exotropia: It is an eye condition when one of the eyes turns outward and the other eye sees the object in the proper direction.

Squint Eye Treatment

Our dedicated team of Squint Eye Specialists diagnoses and provides the best treatment that helps stabilize the eye condition. Our doctors recommend eye exercises in addition to medication.

Strabismus Eye Surgery is recommended for children when the condition is classified as severe, irrespective of the treatment and exercises that are provided. After the Eye Surgery, our Child's Eye Specialist recommend internationally practiced exercises to elevate the power of vision in the operated eye. This is due to the fact that children with squinted eyes put maximum concentration on one eye to see the objects. Routine eye check-ups are recommended to monitor the health and progress of the eyes.

Lazy Eye (amblyopia)

It is an eye condition where one of the eyes is contracted to provide blurry vision and the other eye provides clear vision. Children with Lazy Eyes find it challenging to align their hand-eye coordination. It is a congenital eye disease and has been observed since childhood. A Lazy Eye is due to the deficient development of the nervous system that is improperly connected with the eyes.

The lack of signal that is sent by the eyes gets delayed, and so do the end actions. Inactive eyes start to deteriorate their health when the eye fails to function continuously. The conditions of amblyopia are classified into the following categories

  • Refractive: Both eyes observe a difference in vision.
  • Strabismic: It is a condition where one eye concentrates on the object and the other eye moves rapidly without any control.
  • Deprivation: It is an eye condition where the prevalence of cataracts is the underlaid reason for lazy eyes.

Amblyopia Eye Treatment

Based on the prevailing condition of Lazy Eyes, our Paediatric Ophthalmologists provide various treatments that lead to recovery. There are chances that refractive errors might cause Lazy Eyes. Correcting the refractive errors is the preliminary treatment procedure. Our Children's Eye Care Specialist prescribes eyeglasses that effectively aid in reducing the intensity of lazy eye. There are certain restrictions that the children undergoing refractive error treatment have to wear their spectacles whenever they intend to see the objects and to make their daily lives hassle-free.

Correcting Droopy Eyelids is a treatment procedure performed on children when their eyes are inactive due to the eyelids. Vision exercises are the most commonly recommended Paediatric Eye Treatment choice to transform the inactive eye into a more active one. Lazy Eye Surgery is the final treatment choice for children with eye conditions such as eye injuries, corneal ulcers, and congenital cataracts. We have Best Paediatric Eye Care facilities to perform Surgeries that result in a higher success rate.
