Pediatric Glaucoma Program
Who we are
The Ophthalmology Department of Boston Children’s Hospital offers specialized care for children with glaucoma, a condition in which the pressure inside the eye is elevated.
This high pressure can cause damage to the optic nerve and vision loss that may be irreversible if it is not detected and treated early. Treatments focus on reducing the pressure in the eye using medications or surgery.
- A team of Children's experts, including comprehensive pediatric ophthalmologists and glaucoma specialists, are dedicated to providing the latest testing and treatment options for your child.
- Children’s doctors use the newest equipment selected with the special needs of your child in mind.
