At Eye Centers of Ohio, we treat a full range of pediatric eye conditions.  Our pediatric ophthalmologist's expertise covers a broad array of eye problems typically found in children, including strabismus, amblyopia or 'lazy eye,' as well as more common vision problems requiring only corrective eyeglasses.

Strabismus

While strabismus can affect people of all ages, it is found most often in children.  Strabismus, or eyes that are not straight, can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms, and often prevents those who suffer from it from seeing correctly.

There are a number of common misconceptions surrounding strabismus.  Parents of children who suffer from strabismus are often told that there is no treatment for this condition or that treatments exist solely for cosmetic reasons. This is simply not true. 

Recent advances are allowing doctors to bring the eyes back in line, improving and, in some cases even curing the detrimental effects of strabismus.  At Eye Centers of Ohio, we can help you determine the best method of treatment for your child.

Amblyopia

Amblyopia is characterized by poor vision brought about by an eye not being used.  This condition, otherwise known as 'lazy eye,' usually strikes children. The root cause of amblyopia can usually be traced back to a few factors, including strabismus, lack of focus, or any other lack of clarity in vision, such as pediatric cataracts. 

Adult Strabismus

Although strabismus (the eyes not being straight) is often associated with children, adults too suffer from the condition. 

There are a number of common misconceptions surrounding strabismus.  For example, while adults do often seek treatment for cosmetic reasons, enhancement of image is by no means the only reason to seek care for this condition.  Adult strabismus patients often see double, or suffer from other forms of visual impairment. 

Fortunately, recent advances are allowing doctors to bring the eyes back into line, improving and in some cases even curing the detrimental effects of adult strabismus.  Our center for adult strabismus specializes in adult eye muscle correction and other treatments for adult strabismus.
