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.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
