Lexington Eye Associates is proud of having an extremely “child friendly” environment to deliver pediatric eye care. There are three pediatric ophthalmologists and three certified orthoptists (professionals specially trained in evaluating children’s eyes and eye muscle balance) on our staff that provide expertise in the diagnosis and management of children’s eye conditions.
Our pediatric physicians are on the staff of Children’s Hospital Boston, Emerson Hospital, Winchester Hospital, and several of the Harvard-affiliated hospitals in Boston. We prescribe glasses for children, perform eye surgery when indicated, and work in conjunction with the primary care physician to coordinate the best medical care. Our practice is very familiar and comfortable with children with special needs and chronic health conditions such as juvenile idiopathic arthritis, neurofibromatosis, Down’s syndrome and Asperger’s syndrome. We strive to address parental concerns, put children at ease in the medical setting, and create a positive experience for the entire family. We are accepting new patients in all of our locations, Lexington, Arlington, Concord and Westford.
