CHILDRENS EYE CARE

  • 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Friday) and 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. (Saturday)

Children fear visiting a doctor as they associate the visit with pain. The Paediatric Clinic at the K K Eye Institute provides a fun filled environment for children, where they can play with various toys or read books. This also allows the doctor to examine the child with greater ease. The effort has been to create an ambience which helps in establishing a good rapport between the child and the medical staff, in order to obtain co-operation of the child for best results.

Children’s Eye Specialists trained and qualified specially in Pediatric Ophthalmology offer sensitive and expert care of diagnosing and treating eye conditions of infants and children. A well equipped children’s eye clinic performs routine eye checkups, diagnoses and treats common infections and allergies, congenital cataracts, and squints specific to children. The clinic functions upto 8:30 pm for the convenience of school going children.

The Institute has been holding special Eye Check-up drives for school children. It has conducted a Teachers’ Training workshop educating the teachers on screening of eye disorders in school children. This in turn helped to complete the screening of over 21,000 school children. Many were thereafter treated for eye infection, eye allergies, squint, refractive errors and congenital cataracts.
