The Paediatric Ophthalmology Service at AEHI caters to the evaluation and treatment of eye problems in children at an early stage of their life.
When children suffer from an eye disease, they are neither as expressive as adults are nor their little body has the full capacity to sustain the pain. Child eye care requires immense patience along with consistent affection besides best treatment or surgery, which the eye doctors (Pediatric Eye Doctors) – Dr. Prachi Agashe and Dr. Pragya Rathod and staff members of AEHI always ensure for every child.
The Pediatric Ophthalmology service at Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI), Sanpada, near Vashi, Navi Mumbai offer comprehensive child eye care with hygienic environment and friendly atmosphere.
The management of eye problems in children requires special knowledge and skills. Even before a child can speak, pediatric ophthalmologists can tell what a child sees, if he or she needs eyeglasses or contact lenses, and if any problems exist with the eyes. Eye problems in children require diagnostic and treatment methods that are usually different from those used in the older age group.
Some of the common diseases treated in children include -
1. Cataract (Pediatric Ctaract)
2. Squint (misalignment of eye)
3. Retinopathy of Prematurity
4. Lazy Eye
6. Poor Red Reflex
7. Eye Tumours
8. Retinal disorders
9. Double vision
30% of the population in India comprises of children below the age of 15 years, hence we have a huge focus on improving the vision in children. The mission of the Pediatric Ophthalmology Service is to actively conduct research related to eye problems of children to constantly keep AEHI’s Eye specialists abreast of child eye care problems.
The Hospital is ISO certified and pays full attention to patient care processes and personalized service. The patients love the ambience and the service experience at the hospital. The hospital frequently gets rave reviews about the amazing eye doctors and the empathetic staff. Each staff at AEHI has been trained into extending personal care and attention to people suffering from eye problems. We realise that sometimes a warm smile is all that’s needed to take away the pain of visiting a hospital. After all, nobody visits the hospital by choice.
