Pediatric Ophthalmologist in Gurgaon

Good vision is key to a child’s physical development, success in school and overall well-being. The vision system is not fully formed in babies and young children, and equal input from both eyes is necessary for the brain’s vision centers to develop normally.

We are located at 2 main centers in the National Capital Region. (NCR). With over 30 years of clinical expertise providing world class super speciality eye care, we aim to reverse the tide of curable blindness in the NCR and surrounding townships.


Children often don't complain of decrease in vision, especially if its in one eye. Often squint in one eye or both eyes may be intermittent and not constant and can be missed by parents / guardians. A child’s vision develops in the first few years of life, thus it is important to diagnose and treat amblyopia as early as possible. Otherwise, a child with amblyopia will not develop normal, healthy vision.

Sometimes parents can tell if their child has a vision problem. For instance, their child may squint, hold reading material very close to their face, or complain about things appearing blurry.


The first initial step taken to combat amblyopia is to correct any refractive error. Having a refractive error means being nearsighted, farsighted or having astigmatism (distorted or blurry vision). A child may have a refractive error that is worse in one eye. That eye can “turn off,” or “be lazy” and vision will not develop properly. This can be difficult to tell since the child’s vision seems fine when using both eyes.


Squint is when the eyes point in two different directions. One eye may be focused straight ahead while the other turns in, out, up, or down. To avoid seeing double, the child’s brain may ignore the image from the eye that is not focused straight ahead. But this can keep that eye from developing properly. Squint correction may be the next step of management, as decided by your surgeon.


Allergies can develop from a large number of sources. Allergies can have brutal and harmful effects on the eyes. The management process for allergy can be carried out in different ways depending on the type of allergy, its area of inflexion and the decision of your doctor. Patients with symptoms such as itchy or watery eyes, redness, swelling, and sensitivity to light recommend to consult an Ophthalmologist.


Pediatric Cataract is one of the serious causes of childhood blindness. In the case of Pediatric cataracts, surgery is usually needed to remove the cloudy lens (or lenses) followed by the long-term use of glasses or contact lenses. As childhood cataracts are rare, it's difficult to predict how much a child's vision will be improved by treatment. The cause behind Pediatric cataracts can be a genetic fault inherited from the child's parents that caused the lens to develop abnormally.
