Specialist in PAEDIATRIC OPHTHALMOLOGY AND STRABISMUS
Every patient’s condition is unique, so the approach always differs. The opportunity to apply a touch of creativity based, of course, on knowledge and experience, is what really inspires me.
Strabismus in children and adults
In childhood, an eye that wanders is not used and consequently becomes amblyopic, or what is commonly referred to as a “lazy eye.” If the child is not given appropriated treatment, then although the aesthetic side may be remedied in adulthood, it will not be possible to recover the loss of visual acuity.
Visual capacities are present from birth reason why the first days of life are fundamental for visual development. Visual acuity at birth is almost nil, and vision reaches 100% at 5 years old. Any ocular abnormality that is not diagnosed early enough can hinder visual development and leave lasting damage.
