Pediatric ophthalmology is the subspecialty of ophthalmology dealing with conditions affecting children, including visual development and pediatric eye diseases (often distinct from adult eye diseases).
Strabismus is a vision disorder related to eye misalignment. This can often be related to visual development dysfunction in children, but eye misalignment can also gradually present in adulthood. Pediatric ophthalmologists' expertise in classifying and treating eye misalignment is the reason their scope regularly encompasses adult strabismus in addition to their pediatric focus.
