Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a condition that occurs in premature infants, leading to the abnormal growth of blood vessels in the retina. This can potentially cause vision loss or blindness if left untreated. We are skilled in diagnosing and managing ROP, providing the necessary care to safeguard your baby’s vision and promote healthy eye development.

Patching Therapy

Patching therapy is a gentle and effective treatment for lazy eye (amblyopia). We understand the concerns of parents whose children are affected by this condition. Through patching, we provide a nurturing approach, allowing children to wear an eye patch over their stronger eye, encouraging the weaker eye to grow stronger.
