Pediatric Nerve Palsies/Ocular Nerves Disorders

The nerves that control the movement of a child’s eyes may be disrupted by many factors, including disease and injury. Diagnosing nerve palsies or ocular nerve disorders in children requires careful examination by an experienced pediatric ophthalmologist, who has specialized knowledge of eye pattern movement. Children’s National Hospital ophthalmologists have the in-depth expertise to make a diagnosis. Adults also may have similar eye movement disorders and also can be evaluated at the Children’s National Eye Clinic.
