Pediatric Ophthalmology also focuses on highlighted issues which affect the pediatric vision such as pediatric uveitis, genetic eye disease, developmental abnormalities and more. It is a vision development disorder which is also known as lazy eye. Amblyopia is an eye problem which emerges in kids can also be present in adults. The mechanism of this condition includes the differences of vision in both eyes i.e. the vision in one is weaker to compare to other. It is recommended to have regular vision screening of your child to avoid permanent vision damage. The initial symptoms include abnormal tilting, movements of the eye and improper alignment of both the eyes.

Low vision as the name indicates the condition linked with abnormal or low eye sight which interferes the daily functioning of a child. Pediatric Low vision could be a cause of various eye diseases such as pediatric glaucoma, pediatric cataract etc. Low vision exam of pediatric is differs based on the age of the child. Visual acuity, refractive error, visual field, eye muscle function and color vision are the consideration taken by pediatric ophthalmologists to find out the visual function of a child.

  • Track 3-3Patterns of vision and vision loss

The colourful image of the world that our eye project is depends on how our eyes refract the light into the lens. The refraction of the light rays causes the refractive error which is occurred due to the optical imperfections that hinders the eye from projecting the light and ultimately produces the blurred vision. Astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness are the common refractive errors.  The primary causes of the refractive errors are eye length, curvature of the cornea and curvature of the lens.

A cataract is a turbid or opaque region in the lens of the eye situated at the rear of iris inside the eye. The blurry and dull image will develop due to dense lens of the eye through which the light rays passed and shattered through the cloudy lens.  Children can have a congenital (birth) cataract or can develop later in life. As per the records and estimation it is noted that one in every 250 children may get a cataract either before to birth or during their growth after birth.  A cataract can affect either one or both the eyes.

Vision screening is a productive and cost-effective technique to recognize kids with visual impairment or eye issues that are probably leads to vision loss so that a referral can be made to an appropriate eye care professional for further assessment and treatment. There are several methods used to screen a child's vision. The method picked is largely dependent on the age of the child being screened and the experience of the surveyor.

Several methods of vision screening are:

  • Track 14-1Inspection of the eye
  • Track 14-2Photo screening
  • Track 14-3Corneal light reflex test
  • Track 14-4Cover test
  • Track 14-5Visual acuity test
  • Track 14-6Children’s Vision Screening and Eye Care

There are several types of lens are offered for pediatric patients. Each has its benefits, and the choice will depend on the different child’s needs.

  • Track 15-1Silsoft lens
  • Track 15-2Rigid gas-permeable lenses
  • Track 15-3Soft lenses
  • Track 15-4Scleral lenses
  • Track 15-5Orthokeratology lenses

The corneal biomechanics is used for describing disease states such as keratoconus, which leads to corneal deformation, and thinning, and affecting the mechanical behavior of the cornea. The corneal treatment effectiveness and efficiency depend on the connections between biological and biomechanical factors and their influences on the neigh-boring ocular tissues.

The methods used to study the corneal biomechanics:

  • Track 16-1Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) (Reichert, Inc., Depew, NY)
  • Track 16-2Corvis ST (Oculus Optikgeräte GmbH, Wetzlar, Germany)

The study of strabismus and its related conditions.
