Dr. Shulkin ALSO specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of eye disease in children, including  tear duct obstruction,  eye muscle disease (strabismus), a decrease in vision known as amblyopia. If these conditions are addressed and treated early, proper vision can develop and can be maintained.

Please contact us to schedule an appointment if you are concerned with your child’s vision.


Important To Know!

Children experience a variety of eye problems, many quite distinct from adult eye diseases. Pediatric ophthalmologists are specially trained to manage a wide range of these problems in children.
