A range of illnesses can damage the cornea, the transparent outer layer of the eye/ These are collectively referred to as “corneal diseases.” After an accident or illness, the cornea can often heal naturally, but more severe disorders including infections and degenerative diseases require immediate medical attention. The problem could steadily worsen if left untreated, leading to permanent damage and blindness.
Since eye issues in children require early detection and proper treatment, it is always better to have them evaluated by a pediatric eye specialist. At the Paediatric Ophthalmology Department at Abate Eye Hospital, we have a full-fledged team of doctors, orthoptists, and optometrists and the most up-to-date tools needed for diagnosing and treating paediatric eye diseases. The most frequently treated paediatric eye conditions include refractive errors, strabismus (squint), amblyopia (lazy eye), childhood cataracts, genetic eye illnesses, and congenital glaucoma. Treatments for each of these issues differ, ranging from medication to corrective surgery.
Correction of problems in vision must be diagnosed and treated at the earliest possible. Childhood is a period of rapid growth and development, meaning any issues can be rectified quickly. At Abate Eye Hospital, we have a select staff of knowledgeable and well-trained doctors, orthoptists, and optometrists who can diagnose underlying disorders of the eye and prescribe the ideal treatment to correct them.
Some of the defects can be rectified through the administration of medicines, but some require corrective surgery. These surgeries require sophisticated instruments and surgeons with both knowledge and expertise. At Abate Eye Hospital, we have the most innovative tools that aid our expert doctors to perform surgeries with accuracy and precision.
