Rainbow Children’s Hospital starts comprehensive pediatric ophthalmology services partnering with Sankara Nethralaya

Pediatric ophthalmology is now universally recognized as a specific sub-specialty. Ophthalmic care of children in this era is no longer something that general ophthalmologists do as an adjunct to their predominantly adult clinical practice. It is instead delivered in dedicated pediatric ophthalmology clinics run by teams with expertise in the care of children. Sankara Nethralaya has associated with Rainbow Children’s Hospital, Chennai to provide a highly specialized, niche and advanced eye care facility with expert diagnosis and treatment.

This facility was inaugurated by Dr. T. S. Surendran, Vice-Chairman and Director, Pediatric Ophthalmology, Sankara Nethralaya. The scope of services includes Retinopathy of Prematurity screening and management including anti-VEGF therapy, pediatric ophthalmological emergency and OPD services, refractory errors in children, squint, congenital cataract and tumors of the eye.

The pediatric ophthalmological out-patient clinic adds to the value of the already existing pediatric program run by Rainbow Children’s Hospital and is a one-of-a-kind comprehensive and unique facility in the city.
