Pediatric Eye Health and Strabismus Surgery
Duane and Brown Syndromes Duane syndrome, which is encountered as a congenital anomaly, is an eye disease caused by incorrect transmission of the muscles in the eye with the nerves. Although it is generally diagnosed until the age of 9-10, it is classified as Type1-Type2 and Type3. Brown syndrome, on the other hand, is a visual problem that occurs in the superior oblique muscle. In this syndrome, the eye looks towards the tip of the nose and the eye muscle is very tense. A difficult reduction test is performed and the treatment process begins with the positive result. refractive errors General refractive errors of the eye; These are myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. Refraction errors may occur individually or more than one refractive error may be seen together. The treatment of refractive error of the eye is treated with glasses.
If not treated with glasses, eye fatigue and headache will occur. At the beginning of the examination, the power of the eye is automatically measured with an instrument called an autorefractometer. After the treatment of the refractive error, it is to write down the lens number according to the type and degree of the defect detected at the end of the measurement and to ensure that people use their glasses continuously.
Detection of refractive errors is very important in childhood. It is possible to say that the most critical age range for children is between the ages of 3-4. It is essential to be examined by an ophthalmologist within 2 years for the detection and treatment of refractive errors. Eye examination in babies For babies, visual defects are detected by performing vision tests within 1-3 months following the birth process. In infants, eye examination is performed by dilating the pupil with the help of some devices and examining the parts of the eye. If the baby is very small, it is examined more easily and comfortably with the sedation method.
Although the first visual examination is performed 1 month after birth, it is important to perform a detailed eye examination within 1-2 years for the detection of infant and pediatric eye diseases. Amblyopia (lazy vision) Amblyopia, also known as amblyopia, is a condition in which one eye sees better than the other due to insufficient development of the visual center during infancy and childhood. The person cannot see as sharply and clearly as a healthier eye with the use of contact lenses or glasses. There is no surgical treatment for lazy eye, if the need for glasses causes amblyopia, the patient's glasses treatment is started.
