Just as with other areas of health, pediatric eye issues, and those that affect the retina in particular, are often specific to children. Fortunately, you as a concerned parent, can put your trust in us at The Retina Group of Washington. Our practice has been at the forefront of many landmark studies that are based on childhood retinal ailments, and we continue to be fully involved. So you can be confident that the best care possible is afforded from us.
The retina is not a part of the eye that you can see. It’s located at the back of the eye, but it serves a very vital function in supporting your child’s vision. Among the most common conditions that our Columbia ophthalmology office addresses are juvenile retinal detachment, pediatric retina tumors, optic nerve anomalies, neonatal vitreous hemorrhage, and neovascularization of the retina. That is not a complete list, to be sure. And as alarming as it is to know that your child may have a problem with his or her eye, it’s even more unsettling when it occurs in infancy. The good news is that with our Columbia ophthalmology office, you can breathe easy because your child is benefiting from the highest degree of medical eye care available. We are there to support you and your child every step of the way. She or he will be examined and tested, with expert evaluation made to determine the most appropriate and effective approach. We don’t use a by-the numbers method, but instead tailor your child’s treatment plan to his or her needs and unique situation.
We want you to think of our Columbia ophthalmology office as the location where you can get skilled and experienced attention for your child and her or his retinal challenges. Please contact us to book an appointment.
