Pediatric Optometry

The Pediatric Optometry Service provides comprehensive ocular examinations as well as contact lens and vision therapy (orthoptic) services. We specialize in the evaluation and management of vision problems affecting children, including refractive error, strabismus, amblyopia and binocular vision problems.

Among the entities managed are:

  • amblyopia (occlusion therapy, atropine penalization)
  • strabismus
  • convergence insufficiency (orthoptic exercises)
  • intermittent exotropia (diplopia awareness, orthoptic exercises)
  • accommodative insufficiency
  • refractive error
