Pediatric Eye Examinations

  • A worldwide referral center, the Department of Ophthalmology at Boston Children’s Hospital has conducted pediatric eye examinations of more than 250,000 patients over the past 30 years, including children with common and rare eye conditions, and many patients of all ages with strabismus (misaligned eyes) or double vision.

    Our expertise

    • We have many ways to test vision, ranging from low-tech to high-tech. Our professional staff tailors the exam to your child’s interest, ability and age.
    • You will always see an attending physician -- the doctor responsible for your care -- during your first visit. This doctor is either an optometrist or a pediatric ophthalmologist. Other supporting staff members may assist the attending physician for parts of the exam.
