About our pediatric neuro-ophthalmologist
Gena Heidary, MD, PhD, is the primary clinician for Children's Neuro-Ophthalmology Service. She joined Children's full-time after completing both a fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus in our Department of Ophthalmology and a fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.
Dr. Heidary holds a doctorate in neuroscience and is one of just a few dually fellowship-trained pediatric neuro-ophthalmologists in the U.S. In addition to her extensive background in pediatric neuro-ophthalmology, she is also experienced in managing adult strabismus and eye muscle problems linked to thyroid disease.
