Other Children’s Conditions
Eye conditions affecting children differ from those affecting adults. In addition, any
loss of vision is compounded by a loss of visual brain development known as amblyopia.
Our paediatric ophthalmologists are trained to manage a wide range of children’s eye problems and rehabilitate any associated amblyopia.
The American Association of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS) provide an extensive library of information on eye conditions.
Please click on the following AAPOS links for additional information:
Amblyopia (‘lazy eye’)
Ptosis (droopy eyelid)
Meibomian gland dysfunction – including blepharitis, chalazia, dry eyes
Congenital eye abnormalities such as coloboma
Infections, allergy, injuries
Uveitis – acute, chronic or associated with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA)
Nystagmus – involuntary, shaking, “to and fro” movement of the eyes.
