Ophthalmology services offered at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital and Le Bonheur East Surgery Center encompass a complete range of eye care services for infants, children and adolescents. Pediatric ophthalmologists provide care for common eye disorders of childhood as well as comprehensive intervention for children with cancer, neuro-ophthalmic disorders, inherited and neonatal retinal disorders, anterior segment and glaucomatous diseases.

  • Motility and strabismus disorders
