What is it?
Pediatric Ophthalmology is geared towards the diagnosis and treatment of several diseases, such as:
- Congenital cataract and glaucoma (the child is born with it);
- Ocular tumors, like a retinoblastoma;
- Diseases that can appear since the early months in live, as toxoplasmosis, nasolacrimal duct obstruction or strabismus;
- Refractive errors, also known as ametropias, which can be corrected with glasses.
