PEDIATRIC OPHTHALMOLOGY

Hawaii Vision Clinic offers trusted and safe pediatric Ophthalmology services in Honolulu, Oahu, and the nearby areas. By taking your child to the eye doctor as early as possible, you can help to promote ocular health and proper vision development in the child. When barriers to healthy vision are removed early on, the child has a better chance of healthy long term vision health. Some of the barriers to proper vision include early cataract and poor eye focusing. Our pediatric ophthalmology service is available to children of all ages in our vision clinic.

Other vision concerns that a child may experience include poorly-aligned eyes such as cross eyes which can prevent the full development of the child’s vision. At Hawaii Vision Clinic, more than 5000 eye muscle alignment operations have been performed.

Some of the most common eye disorders occurring in children include:

  • Strabismus
  • Amblyopia
  • Myopia

Strabismus

Strabismus is any misalignment of the eyes that are present in children. Roughly 4% of the population has this condition. There are many different types of Strabismus which include exotropia, esotropia, hypotropia, and hypertropia. We can assist with determining the best Strabismus treatment including Strabismus surgery if needed.

Amblyopia

Amblyopia describes a condition where there is decreased vision in either one or both eyes that is a result of abnormal development in infancy or childhood. The vision loss is caused by the nerve pathways located between the brain and the eye not being properly stimulated.

Myopia

Nearsightedness is a vision condition that prevents people from seeing close objects with clarity and is also referred to medically as Myopia.
