Valley Children’s physicians are skilled in diagnosis, treatment, and long-term care. Our team offers a multidisciplinary approach to patient care and collaborates closely with oncology, immunology, neurology, trauma, rehabilitation and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Ophthalmology collaborates with scenarios including:
- Chemotherapeutic agents that affect the eyes
- Eye misalignment
- Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (formerly known as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis) that can cause inflammation in the eyes.
- Managing patients with non-accidental trauma such as car accident victims, dog bite victims or children who have been shaken (shaken impact syndrome)
- Working with our medical geneticists to manage and treat genetic eye disorders.
