Pediatric eye disease is fundamentally different from adult eye disease and should be treated as such. The developing visual and nervous systems in a child makes it necessary to have a different approach when dealing with pediatric eye problems as compared to adults. Besides, special skills and equipment are required for successfully examining and treating children with eye disease. An additional factor to consider is the psychological impact on children (and their families) when deciding the management of eye problem. We, at DR RAJAN EYECARE HOSPITAL & LASIK LASER CENTRE, appreciate these facts and have a dedicated Pediatric Ophthalmology Service to cater to special needs of pediatric patients.
