Abstract
Pediatric ophthalmology is a challenging yet fascinating field in ophthalmology; since the visual system is still developing in the early childhood, timely diagnosis, and treatment of any eye conditions during that period is especially important to prevent permanent visual loss. The talk will cover the clinical features, assessment, and management strategy of various pediatric eye conditions such as strabismus, nystagmus, and amblyopia that we commonly encountered in daily clinically practice.
