Strabismus is a common eye condition among children. It is when the eyes are not lined up properly and they point in different directions. One eye may look straight ahead while the other eye turns in, out, up or down.

I’m Austin Pediatric Ophthalmology, and I’m dedicated to building long-lasting relationships based on trust and medical integrity with every single patient.
Contact Lens Fitting Process:
The patient will see one of our Doctors for a comprehensive exam. From this exam, the patient will receive a prescription for glasses and a trial contacts prescription
Our Optician will pull contacts in the patient's prescription and set you up with a 1-hour fitting appointment
The Optician will go over the proper care and handling of contacts
How to properly insert and remove contacts
Make sure patient and parents are fully trained in the insertion and removal of contacts
Will answer any questions or concerns
Once patient has succeeded in inserting and removing contacts, they will see the Doctor to verify the fit and power is correct.
The Doctor will then finalize the prescription and provide a copy to the patient.
The patient will leave with a pair of trial contacts in their prescription to verify the prescription works for them before ordering boxes of contacts.
