Pediatric Ophthalmology at Doctor & Associates in
Connecticut Westport Norwalk Wilton Fairfield County

Pediatric ophthalmology is the specialty that provides eye care for children. Children’s eyes and vision are different than adult’s eyes and vision. The brain cells that control our vision are not fully developed, or mature, when we are born. These cells develop throughout the first decade of life. Because of the immaturity of a child's visual system, disorders that may have little effect on an adult’s ability to see can have a profound and life-long effect on a child's vision. Poor vision due to inadequate stimulation of these brain cells, amblyopia, is a common cause of loss of vision in this age group. Some disorders are only seen in children. Some disorders, such as certain types of tumors, may be found in both children and adults, but may have different effects when they occur in children. At Doctor & Associates, Tineke Chan, M.D. is Comprehensive Ophthalmologist as well as a Pediatric Ophthalmology Specialist who has completed a Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus enabling her to take care of a wide range of eye problems for adults and children.
