Paediatric Retina Service
Paediatric Retina Service and Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP)
Pediatric Retina is a nascent subspecialty in Ophthalmology world over. Truly, it is Ophthalmology's newest 'baby'. In the current scenario in India today, this niche specialty is evolving and only a handful of institutes have awarded it the status of a stand - alone department.
Paediatric Patients are high risk of Trauma, and Various Retinal Diseases.
Over half of the world's blind children live in India alone. Approximately 24% of Childhood Blindness in India is Attributable to Retinal Causes.
This is despite the fact that perhaps the most devastating causes of blindness stems from retinal diseases.
At Our Centre, we have full fledged Facilities to manage difficult Paediatric Retinal diseases and retinopathy of Prematurity.
