Dr. Paulo Freitas Costa, Iberoftal’s ophthalmologist specialist at CUF Porto, has spoken about Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus at Poro Canal’s TV show “Consultório”.
What is it? What is it dedicated to? What diseases does it treat? Paediatric Ophthalmology is a field of Ophthalmology devoted to children. The buzzword “a child is not only a small adult” obviously applies to Ophthalmology. Diseases, the way of diagnosing it and its treatment are subject to very specific questions in this age group, especially in infancy and childhood up to 6 years old.
