Multidisciplinary Services

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.
