Pediatric Ophthalmology

The Pediatric Center at Hamilton Eye Institute offers a wide range of eye care services to children of all ages. Our specialists offer comprehensive eye care, from routine examinations to treatment for basic and advanced eye conditions, such as infant and childhood cataracts, pediatric strabismus (crossed eyes), and eye cancer.

Our partnership with Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital allows our pediatric ophthalmologists to collaborate with different specialists offering access to advanced treatments and cutting-edge research.


Glaucoma is a condition in which high pressure in the eye leads to progressive damage of the optic nerve. In most cases, there are no symptoms or warning signs associated with glaucoma, and oftentimes it is hereditary. The best way to save vision is in early detection through regular eye exams.

 Our fellowship-trained glaucoma specialists at Hamilton Eye Institute screen for and diagnose glaucoma, offering patients access to state-of-the-art technology and the most advanced treatment options.


Neuro-ophthalmology is a subspecialty within ophthalmology that combines ophthalmology with neurology to treat vision problems related to neurological conditions. Some common diseases include:

  • Diseases of the optic nerve (optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathy, optic nerve swelling, optic nerve tumors)
  • Idiopathic intracranial hypertension
  • Pupil abnormalities
  • Double vision, eye movement abnormalities (strabismus)
  • Unexplained vision loss and visual disturbances
  • Visual field loss, defects
  • Eyelid abnormalities (blepharospasm, drooping eyelids)
  • Thyroid eye disease
  • Visual changes related to head injury
  • Neurological diseases with associated visual disturbances (stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, other neurodegenerative diseases)

The neuro-ophthalmologists at Hamilton Eye Institute perform thorough examinations that utilize our institute’s advanced diagnostic imaging and testing technology. We have the only surgical neuro-ophthalmology practice in the greater Memphis region, offering clinical and surgical expertise in both adult and pediatric neuro-ophthalmology.
