How will the parents know that there might be an underlying eye disease?

Underlying Eye Disease

  • There will be some signs that the parents can observe:
  • Red eyes
  • Watery eyes
  • Constant head tilt while looking.
  • Constant rubbing of the eyes
  • Lack of attention towards tasks

Why is Paediatric Ophthalmology a specialised care?

Young children are not able to convey their eye problems clearly to the Doctor as they do not understand the problem much. They cannot also answer the questions asked in the clinical history clearly. Hence, it required a highly skilled Doctor to make the young patient explain the history, cooperate during examination and diagnose the eye disease. Also, treating some of the eye diseases in the young is tricky, as the eye ball and its associated muscles, are still growing completely. Hence, there might be cases where more than one sitting is required to treat the underlying condition. The compliance with young children is also difficult, which leads to partial correction of the problem. Nevertheless, a skilled Paediatric Ophthalmologists make sure that the underlying disease is treated.
