  • Providing pediatric ophthalmology consultation to doctors in the pediatric departments

When the eye of children should be checked ?

Children can’t say about their eye problems. Due to this, their eye checkup is important. If some eye diseases like cataract, glaucoma squint, retinal problems, corneal diseases & refractive errors, are not diagnosed earlier the complete blindness may occur.

When eye checkup should be done after birth ?

1) At 1st Month

2) Once in a year
