Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Morales "I do see adults with problems such as cataracts or strabismus, but I mainly focus on seeing children with vision problems like lazy eye, strabismus - or crossed eyes -and occasionally congenital cataracts. A lot of ophthalmology centers on older patients because that's who most frequently has visual problems. But when I saw that children were also affected, and that my intervention at an early age determined how the rest of their lives were going to be, that made me choose pediatric ophthalmology. One of the frequent causes for a visit to me would be lazy eye, and the way we treat lazy eye these days is either by patching the dominant eye - so that this helps strengthen the weaker eye. But recently we found out that there's also a treatment with atropine drops, and that can be used instead of patching. And we have found that it's equally effective in moderate cases. So some parents are relieved to find out we can treat lazy eyes without patching."

I took a friend who is 12 years old, to get his eyes checked. Doctor Morales was very professional and polite with the boy, she did a thorough examination, gave us results and were on our way. I would highly recommend her and the staff was excellent.
