During the U-examinations, the pediatrician routinely looks at the eyes and gets an idea of your child’s vision. If this reveals discrepancies and a visual impairment is suspected, the child is referred to a specialist. But symptoms that are already recognizable to laypersons, such as squinting or eye tremor, can also lead parents to seek a second opinion. If visual impairment is detected at an early stage, it can often be treated well and with little invasive measures.
A competent second opinion from a renowned pediatric ophthalmologist like Dr. Johannes P. Eisenack provides clarity and gives the confidence to choose the best possible therapy. Thanks to modern medicine, we can influence visual development and significantly improve visual impairments even in childhood.
