New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) is among the most experienced centers in the region for evaluating and treating retinal diseases that can affect children of any age. As a large teaching and referral center, we routinely handle a wide range of cases, from retinal detachments to severe eye trauma to inherited and acquired congenital disorders. Since children with retinal problems tend to have multiple eye conditions, we are equipped to treat each through teams of sub-specialists whose collaborative efforts are geared to maximizing outcomes while minimizing the number of procedures young patients must undergo.

The center uses the latest technologies to produce high resolution images of the many types of abnormalities, dystrophies and changes that can impact the fragile retinas of children. Here are some of the major pediatric retinal conditions we diagnose and treat:
