Good vision in children is essential to their physical and social development, and the Lions Eye Institute provides comprehensive care for a range of childhood eye conditions. These include but are not limited to, strabismus (squint), amblyopia (lazy eye), congenital cataract, myopia, glaucoma and a range of retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy.
Some conditions are present at birth and others develop throughout childhood, and our experienced paediatric ophthalmologists and other sub-specialists can treat all paediatric conditions, as well as eye trauma and other issues. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical for many childhood eye conditions, to reduce the risk of complications and prevent vision loss.
At the Lions Eye Institute, our clinicians are leaders in their fields. All sub-specialty trained, they provide our patients with the best possible care, using state-of-the-art equipment to help patients achieve a better quality of life.
