Other useful information: 

The Section of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus caters to the eye health needs of patients aged 0 to 18 years old. With its retinue of consultant staff with well-rounded subspecialty training from notable institutions here and abroad, the Section provides quality, up-to-date, and efficient primary pediatric eye health care that includes diagnosis and management of congenital and infantile cataracts, errors of refraction, amblyopia, retinopathy of prematurity, ophthalmia neonatorum, allergic and infectious conjunctivitides, congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction, congenital and infantile glaucoma, associated ocular anomalies in craniofacial and dysmorphic syndromes as well as other systemic disorders with ocular manifestations. The Section closely works together with other Subspecialty Sections of the DOH Eye Center in co-managing other ocular disorders that require highly specialized and multi-specialty eye care. The Section is also actively involved with the diagnosis and treatment of various disorders of ocular alignment in both pediatric and adult patients. Following the World Health Organization's directive on the Childhood Blindness Prevention Program, a formal Fellowship Training Program in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus was developed and implemented in January 2008 that was geared towards the training of competent, well-rounded, compassionate, and ethical pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus specialists who will practice in underserved areas of the Philippines. It is the aim of the Section to provide fast and efficient albeit, high-quality standard of care to the DOH Eye Center's pediatric and strabismus patients.
