Our team treats thousands of patients annually and is expertly trained and board-certified in ophthalmology. UF Health pediatric ophthalmologists are tasked with everything from prescribing glasses and contact lenses to performing intricate and delicate eye surgery.

Sharp vision plays a crucial role in the mental, physical and social development of all children. Their vision undergoes neurologic development until the beginning of adolescence or about 12 years old. That’s one of the many reasons why UF Health emphasizes the special pediatric eye care techniques required to examine the anatomy, function and diseases of the eyeball and orbit among children.

Our pediatric ophthalmologists are well-equipped to care for the most complex pediatric ophthalmology patients. We specialize in strabismus, amblyopia and nasolacrimal duct issues, as well as retinopathy of prematurity, pediatric cataracts, pediatric ocular trauma and genetic retinal diseases of childhood.

Our team includes expert pediatric ophthalmologists and optometrists who have subspecialty pediatric care of the retina, cornea, glaucoma and oculoplastics.

Our pediatric ophthalmologists also offer:

  • Comprehensive eye care
  • On-site lab testing
