Pediatric ophthalmologists treat eye disorders in children from birth to adulthood.
Pediatric ophthalmologists specialize in treating complex eye issues in premature babies, infants, and children to reduce the effects of long-term eye problems later in life.
Many procedures can be done without the need for an overnight stay. Nemours works with parents and specialists to coordinate care, so you can see several doctors on the same day, in the same place.
