Special Treatment for Young Patients
Children are not simply smaller adults. There are pediatric-specific conditions that affect the eyelids, tear system and bony structure of the orbit, or eye socket. Vision loss during childhood can impact a child’s ability to learn important skills for growth, development, and independence, such as crawling, walking, reading, writing, and playing sports. Michael Neimkin, M.D. at the Ophthalmic Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center in Atlanta, GA, routinely treats young patients with pediatric conditions. He often collaborates with other pediatricians to ensure the highest level of care for his patients.
Pediatric conditions treated by Dr. Neimkin:
- Amblyopia, or lazy eye
- Anisometropia, or unequal vision
- Congenital and developmental cataracts
- Retinopathy of prematurity
- Strabismus, or misaligned eyes
Each individual is unique; therefore, results may vary.
