Care Philosophy

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.
