Pediatric Strabismus Service | Overview
The Pediatric Strabismus Service at Boston Children's Hospital offers comprehensive evaluation and correction of strabismus (otherwise known as misaligned eyes or crossed eyes) in babies, children, and adults of all ages.
Our highly experienced pediatric ophthalmologists are known locally and nationally for handling the most difficult cases of strabismus. Many children with complex strabismus that involves multiple eye muscles and others who have had failed attempts at correcting strabismus elsewhere, are routinely referred to Boston Children's Hospital. Here, baby and child friendly eye exams are used to detect strabismus and innovative approaches are used to straighten the eyes.
Adults with strabismus are referred to our pediatric practice because ophthalmologists specially trained in childhood eye conditions have expertise in the delicate eye muscle surgery typically required to straighten the eyes. For more information, see Adults With Strabismus.
