Most Common Eye Problems in Children

SQUINT:- Squint in children is often misunderstood as a sign of good luck. It could be the harbinger of a serious underlying disease. Strabismus alters the alignment of the two eyes and makes it difficult to see three-dimensional objects (what we call stereopsis). The extra squint can cause one eye to become amblyopic, which should be treated by patching the good eye. Apart from all this, strabismus in children has important cosmetic ramifications and reduces the child’s self-confidence. We provide the best treatment to correct the child’s squint. Strabismus correction does not happen on its own, and your strabismus treatment or surgery (if necessary) should begin as soon as possible to have the best chance of improvement.

CATARACT:-  Cataracts in children – it is a misnomer that cataracts occur only in adults. Cataracts in children are rarer, but assume the same meaning if we consider the concept of blind years since children would live longer. Further delay in treatment can lead to amblyopia, which can be very difficult to treat.

TUMORS:- Tumors in children Various tumors such as retinoblastoma and rhabdomyosarcoma can occur in children. Regular checkups are needed if the child has received radiation for any reason or if the parents have a history of malignancy.

Vitamin A Deficiency and keratomalacia:-  Unfortunately, this is still a serious problem. This can be common in children with nutritional deficiencies, especially if there is intercurrent illness. Exclusive breastfeeding is mandatory in the first four to six months of life. Children who are weaned early are at particular risk for vitamin A deficiency. This condition can lead to corneal melting and permanent, often untreatable, vision loss.

AMBLYOPIA:- Patients experience a delay in reacting to the brain’s command to focus their vision on objects. Amblyopia usually occurs in either eye. The patient’s eyes do not follow the instructions as soon as possible. The eyes react very slowly and a time lag occurs when the eye begins to search for objects. Lazy eye leads to amblyopia and severe vision loss occurs when patients ignore treatment at the first of complications.

PTOSIS:- this refers to the drooping of the eyelids. This could be myogenic or neurogenic. When severe, it can interfere with vision and cause amblyopia. The mildest cases are associated with refractive errors.

Frequently Asked Questions about Cataract Treatment in Meerut

What are the common symptoms of a cataract?

Cataracts grow gradually with the slow blurring of vision that is not correctable by glasses. Some people get their vision quickly deteriorated, with difficulty in nighttime driving, glares, halos, and overall foggy vision.

Does cataract happen in children?

Cataracts can happen in children. Any white reflex observed in children should be taken very seriously. Visit a paediatric ophthalmologist at Visioncare Super Speciality Eye Hospital for prompt diagnosis and management.

Do cataracts develop due to getting old?

Cataracts commonly occur in adult life. These are age-induced cataracts and may develop after 40 years of age. But not all people develop a cataract in old age and not all who develop it require treatment.

How long does the cataract surgery take?

Cataract surgery typically lasts for 15-20 minutes.

If I have a cataract in both eyes, can they be treated at the same time?

Cataract generally develops in one eye faster than the other, so it is advisable to operate the one in worse condition first. But it is possible in exceptional situations to operate on both at the same time at Visioncare Super Speciality Eye Hospital after understanding the pros and cons of the process.

I cant see anything clearly after the operation. What should I do?

Give your eyes some time before it gets back to normal vision. Vision may be impaired for the first few days of cataract surgery.
