One of the most common vision problems in kids is amblyopia (also called "lazy eye"). This is when one eye, or both, sends a blurry image to the brain. The brain then “learns” to see blurry. But treatment for amblyopia can correct the way the eye and brain work together to help strengthen your child's vision. At Nemours Children's, our kids' eye specialists are trained to detect amblyopia and provide expert care to treat it.
Our board-certified and fellowship-trained eye doctors are trained at nationally recognized institutions to provide the highest level of surgical and medical treatments for eye problems in kids, from the common to the complex. Many of our physicians are recognized as “Best Doctors in America®” and “Top Doctors” in the communities we serve. We perform advanced operations, including laser surgery, to treat and repair kids’ eyes.
We’re also active in research to find new and better ways to treat eye problems in children. And we offer a coordinated, team approach for kids with multiple health needs. That means we can help you arrange visits with multiple doctors on the same day, in the same place.
