Eye Care at Children's Hospital Colorado
Diagnosing eye problems in children is not an easy task. Even parents, who are familiar with their child’s behavior and developmental skills, can miss the subtle signs of eye problems. Because early detection of eye problems can make a critical difference in a child’s vision and also impact their learning and development, it is important that children who are suspected to have a sight problem are seen by pediatric specialists.
At Children's Hospital Colorado, we treat only children and teens. We know how to get and keep a kid's attention during eye exams and how to put nervous parents at ease. This can make a big difference in diagnosing and treating your child. Learn why kids need Children's Hospital Colorado.
