If your child's eyes aren't developing normally, it's vital to seek treatment as soon as possible to restore and maintain good eyesight. It's possible that they'll need to see a paediatric ophthalmologist. These specialists are experts in identifying and treating children's eye problems. While all ophthalmologists have some training in kid eye illnesses, paediatric ophthalmologists have more expertise and experience diagnosing and treating common paediatric eye conditions. Optometrists and ophthalmologists can both check a child's eyes, test their vision, and, if necessary, prescribe glasses or contacts. Optometrists are not medical doctors; however, they can treat some eye problems with drugs. All diseases and disorders of the eye can be diagnosed and treated by ophthalmologists, who can also perform surgery if necessary. Pediatric ophthalmologists have extensive experience in treating children in a way that makes them feel at ease and agreeable. They use eye tests that are tailored to the child's developmental stage, as well as specially built children's equipment.
