Pediatric Eye Care

Vision develops rapidly starting at birth and is tied to many developmental milestones, such as hand-eye coordination and reading. In the long term, your child's vision will impact their learning, playing, and interactions with the world.

While there may be some obvious signs of visual disorders, many vision problems can only be detected by a qualified eye doctor during a comprehensive eye exam.

Strabismus is one of the most common eye conditions in children. Strabismus occurs when the eyes are not aligned properly. One or both of your child's eyes may turn inward, outward, upward, or downward.

Your child can be born with strabismus, or it can be acquired later in life. Strabismus can also develop due to an accident or other health problem. In some children, strabismus is intermittent, while in others, it is always present.

What Our Patients Say

"Dr. Winkle and staff provide the most professional, friendly, and best customer service. Our 5 yr old daughter had strabismus surgery with Dr. Winkle 2 weeks ago, and I couldn’t be any more happier with the results and how quickly she’s recovered. Dr. Winkle and his team provided very detailed and important information during surgery, pre-op, and post-op. They take their time to explain and answer any questions one has. Their level of professionalism and care for our child was beyond anything. We are extremely grateful and thankful for what they did to better our little one’s vision."

"What a great place to bring children. First-class facility and great staff!"

"These guys are amazing with children! I would really recommend coming here if your kiddos are experiencing difficulties with their vision."
