Newer Technologies for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus
Medical innovations have impacted health care in the twenty-first century, and the adoption of technology into day-to-day patient care has been profound in the field of ophthalmology. The subspecialty of pediatric ophthalmology is no exception. The pediatric eye is critical and time sensitive as the visual development occurs in the first 8 years of life and hence early diagnosis and appropriate management of ocular disease in childhood is critical and has life-long consequences. In this chapter we will discuss the medical innovations that have impacted the subspecialty of pediatric ophthalmology in a major way, and we will discuss this under innovations in screening, diagnosis, and treatment.
