Pediatric Ophthalmology

It's up to the parents to be on the lookout for symptoms of children's eye problems. Often children will not relate their problems directly but will give indirect clues. Difficulty in acquiring reading skills, decreased attention span, poor academic performance, and behavioral problems require an eye examination in search for a possible cause. Overt symptoms such as excessive rubbing of the eyes, squinting, complaints of headache or dizziness are signals for help. There can be no question that good vision and education go hand in hand.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that vision screening for all children begin by the time they are 3 years of age, and continue yearly through elementary school. Rosenblum Eye Centers encourages parents to protect their children's eyesight to ensure early detection of any vision problem.

Enforcing our strong commitment to this matter, Rosenblum Eye Centers has a pediatric ophthalmologist, Dr. Ronald Schechter, on staff to perform a complete check-up on infants and toddlers. His work is extensive - including the back of the eye where the retina is located.

Problems such as crossed eyes, squinting or "lazy" eye often signal a sight problem that demands immediate attention. Dr. Renee Richards, a world renowned pediatric ophthalmologist specializes in treating strabismus and eye muscle disorders.

Good vision as an adult starts with healthy eye sight as a child.
