Mercy Clinic Children’s Eye Specialists offers comprehensive pediatric ophthalmology care for a variety of eye disorders in children. Our focus is to help children see the world through their eyes more clearly.

Why Worry About a Child’s Eyes?

Children are able to see as soon as they are born. For the visual system to continue to develop properly, children need clear input from both eyes to the brain. If there is some problem that interferes with vision in either eye or both, the connections from the eye to the brain can become weak or not develop properly. Crossed or turned eyes or imbalance in refractive errors can interfere with this normal development of the visual system.

Because of the importance of normal vision in infants, and because of our abilities to recognize and treat problems early, we are interested in examining very young children. This is especially true if the parents or the child’s doctor feels that there may be some problems, or if there is a family history of eye problems.

Our providers and caring staff are committed to giving our young patients the best eye care experience available. We can diagnose and treat both common and uncommon eye issues, performing surgery as needed. We specialize in all aspects of children’s eye care, including:

  • Eye crossing (strabismus)
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Refractive errors (focusing problems)
  • Eye movement disorders (nystagmus)
  • Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy and cortical blindness
  • Photorefraction and screening for amblyopia
  • Retinopathy of prematurity, retinal malformations, retinoblastoma and optic nerve disorders
  • Drooping or misshapen eyelids and hemangiomas
  • Tear duct disorders
  • Orbital infections and tumors
  • Disorders of eye movements and double vision
