My specialty is Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Eye Muscle Problems. Pediatric Ophthalmology is a subspecialty of ophthalmology concerned with strabismus and visual development in infants, children, and teenagers. Pediatric Ophthalmologists also manage adults with eye alignment disorders or strabismus. The best way to know if your child has an eye or vision problem is to be screened by your child's pediatrician. If you have a concern about your child's eyes, come see me. I care for each personally.
Hello. I am Dr. Miles Burke.
I want to talk to you about children's eye care.
Proper visual development requires that the eyes see or focus clearly and that the eyes are aligned properly or that they are straight.
Eyes that do not see clearly may only be due to something as simple as their not focusing properly which glasses correct.
A more serious problem may interfere with an eye's ability to see. This is called amblyopia. Amblyopia must be identified and treated by age 8 to have a chance of success.
Eye misalignment or strabismus is a condition where the eyes may be crossed or may drift outwardly. Eye misalignment may interfere with binocular or two-eyed depth perception. Strabismus may also cause amblyopia.
The best way to know if your child has an eye or vision problem is to be screened. Your child's pediatrician is the best first step for eye screening.
If they determine that your child may have an eye problem, your child will be referred for a complete evaluation (exam) by a pediatric ophthalmologist - a child's Eye M.D. care specialist.
