Kids Eye Treatments in Ambala

Approximately 80% of a child’s learning during their first 12 years relies on their vision. However, children often aren’t aware of any vision issues they may have and may grow up with them unnoticed. Early diagnosis is crucial in preventing many eye diseases.

Our Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus Service offers comprehensive primary care for diagnosing and managing infant and child vision, including common childhood vision disorders. Additionally, we perform surgeries to correct ocular misalignment and double vision in both children and adults.

Children, like adults, experience a range of eye problems, which can sometimes go unnoticed due to their inability to express them.

At LJ Eye Institute, we offer a complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic options to address all types of eye problems in children.

Why To Choose LJ Eye Institute For Child Eye Treatment?

When it comes to your child’s vision, choosing the right specialist is paramount. At LJ Eye Institute, we understand the importance of expert care and compassion when it comes to pediatric ophthalmology. Here’s why parents in Ambala choose us:

Expert Pediatric Ophthalmologist: Dr. Urvish Vashish, our renowned pediatric ophthalmologist, brings years of experience and expertise to our institute. His dedication to children’s eye health ensures that your child receives the best possible care.

What is the limit of myopia?
The higher the number, the more short sighted you are. Mild myopia includes powers up to -3.00 dioptres (D). Moderate myopia, a power of -3.00D to -6.00D. High myopia is usually a power over -6.00D.
How long does myopia last?
Most myopia usually stabilizes by age 15 to 20, with an average at 16 years. Myopia typically begins in childhood, commonly between ages 8 and 10. It is usually due to the eyeball growing too long. Severity, age of onset, heredity and environment can all affect what age myopia stops progressing.
What is the main cause of myopia?
Nearsightedness usually results from the eye being too long or oval-shaped rather than round. It may also result from the curve of the cornea being too steep. These changes result in light rays coming to a point in front of the retina and crossing. The messages sent from the retina to the brain are perceived as blurry.
Can myopia be fully cured?
It can be managed or delayed, but there is no known cure. If you can see things clearly up close, but they get blurrier as they get farther away, you might have myopia. While myopia has no cure, you can successfully manage the condition with corrective lenses or refractive surgery, such as LASIK.
Can squint be corrected at any age?
Many people think that squint is a permanent condition and cannot be corrected. But the truth is that eyes can be straightened at any age.
Can people with squint eyes see properly?
Do people with squint eyes have normal vision? In children and adults who suffer from Strabismus, both eyes focus on different directions. As a result, two images are sent to the brain. Since images communicated are entirely different from each other the brain fails to merge them as one complete picture.
Can a squint come back after surgery?
But it doesn’t always come back. In fact, most patients require just one corrective surgery over a lifetime. If it does come back, it’s usually possible for a skilled specialist to again reposition the muscles and restore the benefits of straight eyes for the patient.
Can you control a lazy eye?
Treatment for amblyopia involves the child using the weaker eye more. This helps the eye get stronger. To make the child use the weaker eye, they will wear an adhesive patch over the stronger eye. Most children wear their patches 2 to 6 hours a day.
Can lazy eye be treated in adults?
Yes. The root cause of lazy eye is poor binocular vision. This is one of the main problems vision therapy can address. Lazy eye in adults can be successfully treated by improving their visual skills, which can be achieved at any age.
How serious is lazy eye?
Untreated, lazy eye can cause permanent vision loss.

Myopia Treatment at LJ Eye Institute

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a refractive error of the eye where distant objects appear blurred while close objects can be seen clearly. This occurs when the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too curved, causing light rays to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it. As a result, images of distant objects are focused in front of the retina, leading to blurry vision. Myopia is a common vision condition that can often be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses, or refractive surgery. If left uncorrected, myopia can potentially lead to complications such as eyestrain, headaches, and an increased risk of other eye problems like glaucoma and retinal detachment.

Lazy Eye / Amblyopia Treatment at LJ Eye Institute

Lazy eye, also known as amblyopia, is a vision development disorder that typically begins during infancy or early childhood. It occurs when one eye has significantly better vision than the other, leading the brain to favor the stronger eye and ignore signals from the weaker eye. As a result, the weaker eye does not develop properly, leading to reduced vision that cannot be fully corrected with glasses or contact lenses.

Amblyopia can be caused by various factors, including strabismus (misaligned eyes), significant differences in refractive errors between the eyes (anisometropia), or certain eye conditions such as cataracts or ptosis (drooping of the eyelid). Early detection and treatment are crucial for improving vision in the lazy eye.

Squint Treatment at LJ Eye Institute

Squint, also known as strabismus, is a condition characterized by an abnormal alignment of the eyes. In a person with squint, the eyes may not point in the same direction simultaneously. This misalignment can be constant or intermittent and may affect one or both eyes.

There are several types of squint:

  1. Esotropia: One or both eyes turn inward towards the nose.
  2. Exotropia: One or both eyes turn outward away from the nose.
  3. Hypertropia: One eye is higher than the other, causing misalignment in an upward direction.
  4. Hypotropia: One eye is lower than the other, causing misalignment in a downward direction.

Squint can occur due to various factors, including muscle imbalance, refractive errors (such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism), neurological conditions, or trauma.

Cataract in Kids

Cataract in children is a condition characterized by the clouding of the lens inside the eye. Normally, the lens is clear, allowing light to pass through and focus on the retina, enabling clear vision. However, in cataract, this lens becomes cloudy, leading to blurred or impaired vision.

While cataracts are more commonly associated with aging, they can occur in children for various reasons, including genetic factors, metabolic disorders, trauma, inflammation, or infections contracted during pregnancy. In some cases, cataracts may be present at birth (congenital cataracts) or develop during childhood (developmental cataracts).

Cataracts in children can significantly impact visual development and may lead to permanent vision loss if left untreated. Early detection and prompt treatment are essential to minimize the impact on vision.
