Pediatric ophthalmologists are surgeons who specialize in treating eye disorders in babies and children. Nemours Children's treats nearly every childhood eye condition in kids from birth to age 18.
We identify and treat eye issues early to reduce the chances of long-term vision problems. Our doctors have special expertise in treating complex eye issues in premature babies.
We can do many eye procedures, including laser surgery, without the need for an overnight stay. We’ll arrange care with other specialists your child may see. This way, you can see several doctors on the same day, in the same place.
Nemours is working to create a healthier world for children. Helping children see better is one way we’re living up to our mission.
We take care of children’s vision from day one, including being involved in research about better ways to treat pediatric eye conditions.
