Paediatric ophthalmologists (Children’s eye specialist)

What is a paediatric ophthalmologist?

A paediatric ophthalmologist is a doctor that cares for children with any eye condition. Common conditions include, refractive/optical problems, strabismus (also known as squint), infections such as conjunctivitis and eyelid lesions such as styes.

Our general paediatric team can assess, reassure you and treat your child for many of these concerns, but commonly refer for an opinion when needed.
