The retina is the part of the eye located at the back, where light focuses after having passed through the cornea at the front of the eye. Under normal circumstances, it functions properly and there is nothing to be concerned about. But when you see the extensive list of diseases that we deal with, such as juvenile retinal detachment, Coats disease, optic nerve anomalies (including optic pit and morning glory disc), benign and malignant pediatric retinal tumors, and familial exudative vitreoretinopathy, it soon becomes apparent that there are a variety of ways in which your child’s retinas and surrounding parts and nerves can fail to operate in a fashion that supports optimal vision and eye well-being. That’s when you want to seek out our pediatric ophthalmologist in Fredericksburg.
One of the cornerstones of our commitment to children’s eye care is that we treat both the patient– your infant, child, or teen – as well as offering support and attention to the family. Our staff is well-known for its professionalism and compassion in working with parents and the entire family. We understand that you’re worried and we want to do everything possible to assure you that your child is being tended to in the absolute best manner possible, using up-to-date equipment and methods, by our pediatric ophthalmologist in Fredericksburg.
