It’s a fact that during the first 12 years of life, nearly 80% of learning is accomplished through the sense of sight. That’s why protecting children’s vision is so important. For the experienced, world-class, kid-friendly eyecare thousands of parents trust for their children, look to Giulio Diamante, MD & Associates, a renowned board-certified ophthalmologist treating a variety of pediatric eye conditions.
Diagnosis & treatment of pediatric vision problems
Dr. Diamante provides comprehensive evaluations and proven treatments for both routine and complex pediatric eye conditions, including:
- Amblyopia – This is a condition in which the vision in one eye (or both eyes) is poor, usually as a result of strabismus, farsightedness, nearsightedness or astigmatism. Other eye conditions can result in amblyopia, as well. That’s why thorough eye exams are essential for children of all ages.
- Strabismus – Approximately 4% of children in the United States are affected by this condition characterized by crossed-eyes or eyes that are otherwise misaligned or pointing in different directions. If not treated, children with strabismus risk permanent loss of visual acuity.
Dr. Diamante has taken great pride in obtaining the most advanced ophthalmic diagnostic technology and equipment available. The American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend a first eye exam at 6 months of age, again at the age of 3 or 4 and then every year or two thereafter. At OPTX, we treat children with care and concern that frequently leads to a lifetime relationship.
Parents may accompany children throughout their exam and get answers to any questions. Our staff is very sensitive to making every child’s experience pleasant – and Dr. Diamante has exceptional sensitivity to the fears of children.
