Patients are cared for by a multidisciplinary team, meaning your child will benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists across a variety of disciplines. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric neuro-ophthalmologists have extensive experience treating ophthalmological conditions related to the central nervous system in children and adolescents of all ages, from birth through young adulthood, and work alongside a team of pediatric experts, including neurologists, neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, nurses, advanced practice providers, social workers, child life specialists, dietitians, and more, providing unparalleled care for patients every step of the way.
If your child has a condition that aligns with one of our specialty centers, we will coordinate care for your child with a specialist in that area. We can also facilitate appointments with any other neuroscience specialty clinic. With access to expert staff and advanced technology for treating both acute and chronic neuro-ophthalmic conditions, we provide a wide range of services from evaluation, testing, and diagnosis to surgical treatment, disease management, rehabilitation, and more, to give patients and their families the best quality of life.
We also collaborate closely with referring physicians, pediatricians, and other partners in the community to schedule and coordinate any additional care services your child may need. Our specialists can provide input and guidance for areas of your child’s life that are affected by their neuro-ophthalmic condition by assisting with school services, school re-entry, socialization, and engagement in physical activities. All of these areas impact your child’s quality of life and are an integral part of our mission at the pediatric neuro-ophthalmology clinic. As your child transitions into adulthood, we will help coordinate their care so they can continue to thrive.
