Stony Brook Children’s provides something that few hospitals do: comprehensive medical and surgical eye care for infants, children, and adolescents, as well as access to every ophthalmologic subspecialty.
For children with suspected eye problems, early ophthalmologic evaluation by specialized experts can help target appropriate treatment with a goal of preventing vision loss. Pediatric ophthalmologists are specialized eye doctors with medical and surgical expertise in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of children’s eye and vision problems, as well as eye misalignment issues. Stony Brook Children’s is one of the few academic medical centers that not only has a dedicated Department of Pediatric Ophthalmology, but also has subspecialists in neuro-ophthalmology, retinal, uveitis, oculoplastics, glaucoma, and corneal diseases. At Stony Brook Children’s, our Department of Pediatric Ophthalmology can address the full spectrum of your child’s eye disorders and vision issues, all in a child-friendly, family-centered environment.
