Pediatric Retinal Disorders

Retinal disorders in children are different than those in adults. The pediatric ophthalmologists at Children's National Hospital are experts at identifying ophthalmic disorders in children. They are familiar with the retinal manifestations of systemic diseases in children and work closely with their colleagues at Children's National and in the community. In addition, retina specialists with interest in children's eye diseases are on the hospital staff and help provide medical and surgical retina care when needed.
