Pediatric Cornea Program - Corneal Disease in Children

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

The Pediatric Cornea Program at Boston Children’s Hospital offers comprehensive evaluation and management of children with corneal and ocular surface diseases. There are many diseases of the cornea that afflict children, but when properly diagnosed and managed, outcomes can be very positive.

Our expertise

  • Our cornea specialist has extensive experience in all aspects of pediatric corneal disease and external diseases.
  • A new approach for the treatment of corneal opacities in children involves the placement of an artificial (plastic) cornea, called a keratoprosthesis. Developed in Boston, this device improves visual acuity very rapidly after the surgery. In addition, the body cannot reject the keratoprosthesis because it is plastic. This is an exciting advance in the treatment of pediatric corneal diseases.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
- Sandra L. Fenwick, President and CEO
