The Section of Pediatric Ophthalmology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment for pediatric eye problems. According to the American Academy of Ophthamology, many sight-threatening diseases, if detected early, can be cured or treated to prevent or slow the progression of any vision loss.
The most important preventive step is receiving routine examinations by a qualified eye care professional. Children should receive their first comprehensive eye examination before the age of four, unless a specific condition or history of family vision problems necessitates an earlier examination.
All of the pediatric ophthalmologists at Rush are board certified. Call (312) 942-5315 to make an appointment.
