Overview

Identifying childhood eye and vision problems early is often the best way to preserve or restore vision. This applies to common pediatric eye conditions -- such as refractive errors requiring eyeglasses, amblyopia (or lazy eye), and strabismus (eyes that are not straight) -- as well as serious eye conditions such as childhood cataracts; glaucoma; optic nerve and retinal diseases like retinopathy of prematurity; and an eye tumor called retinoblastoma. Pediatric eye specialists at the nationally ranked Duke Eye Center use the latest advances in pediatric ophthalmology to optimize your child’s vision and eye health.
