Specialized Treatment for Strabismus

Dr. Potter specializes in treating strabismus, a condition characterized by misalignment of the eyes. He utilizes advanced diagnostic techniques to assess the underlying cause and severity of the condition. Treatment options may include non-surgical approaches like vision therapy and the use of corrective lenses, as well as surgical interventions when necessary. Dr. Potter’s expertise in strabismus surgery ensures precise realignment of the eyes, improving both the cosmetic appearance and visual function. With our dedicated care, we are committed to helping your child achieve optimal eye alignment and enhance their quality of life.

Personalized Treatment for Amblyopia

Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, occurs when one eye does not develop normal visual acuity, leading to reduced vision in that eye. Dr. Potter provides comprehensive care for children with amblyopia.

Treatment for amblyopia typically involves a combination of strategies to strengthen the weaker eye and improve overall vision. This may include using corrective lenses, eye patches, or eye drops to encourage the weaker eye to work harder. Vision therapy exercises can be recommended to enhance visual skills and coordination. Schedule a consultation in Stamford and take the first step toward a brighter future for your little one.

Managing Myopia Progression in Children

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a common refractive error that causes distant objects to appear blurry. Myopia often progresses during childhood and can lead to higher levels of nearsightedness over time. Our team offers specialized myopia control strategies to reshape the cornea or modify the eyes’ focusing, effectively managing the condition’s progression. Schedule a consultation to start the journey toward controlling myopia and preserving your child’s visual health.

Correcting Common Eye Conditions

We understand that clear vision is vital for a child’s development and academic success. We prescribe glasses specifically tailored to address refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. At Greenwich Ophthalmology Associates, we are committed to nurturing children’s visual health and empowering their success in every aspect of life.
