Their life through healthy eyes

Visual screening

Painless ophthalmological investigations

Controlling the progression of myopia

Dedicates pediatric eye doctors

A good vision should be maintained from childhood, by having a pediatric ophthalmology consultation at Clario

The happiness you see in your child's eyes is the fuel that drives their existence. And you, above all, want to always know that they are healthy. Your child's eyes need special attention, which Clario specialists ( pediatric ophthalmologists and pediatric optometrists) are ready to give. A pediatric ophthalmology examination is an act of preventing adult eye diseases.

Visual screening

The innocence in your child’s eyes would be the same in the face of any disease, but ideally, they would never experience that. Their eyes are sensitive and prone to change as they grow older. Some vision problems do not immediately show signs. It is recommended to take your child to a pediatric ophthalmology consultation, starting with the age of 6 months – 1 year, and to repeat the visits once every 2 years, until they reach adolescence. Screening is the best decision you can make as a parent for pediatric eye care.

Painless investigations

While they discover and explore the world around them, children can have small accidents. Something can get in their eyes, or they can have a small accident. If such situations may require emergency intervention, a trivial headache, on the other hand, can be a sign of eye disease. The lazy eye can also be noticed late and the signs of strabismus should not be ignored. 

At Clario, the various ophthalmological investigations, the prescription for glasses, as well as any other stage eye-care control are performed in a friendly way, without discomfort or pain. Your child’s comfort is also important to us because we know how much it means to him/her. 

Controlling the progression of myopia

Having poor distance vision, wearing glasses with increasing diopters or thick and unsightly lenses, are the effects myopia can have on your child’s vision. But there are ways in which the progression of myopia can be kept under control. If the little one complains, around the age of 6-8, of blurred vision and you notice that he/she winks to see more clearly, access as soon as possible the pediatric ophthalmology services at Clario.

Frequently asked questions about the surgery

What does visual screening mean? why is it necessary?

Screening is a medical consultation that aims to tell you if your child’s eyes are well, at some point. Vision starts to develop in the first months of life so it is very important to do a check-up as soon as possible. If all goes well, it’s a cause for joy for everyone. But it is not guaranteed that this will be the case throughout a lifetime. Periodic pediatric ophthalmology checks-ups are necessary, because while growing, the eyes change.

Undetected and untreated in time, these changes can affect your child’s long-term vision. For young children we can measure diopters with a special device – Plusoptix – located one meter from the child. The measurement is fast, accurate, non-invasive and does not involve touching the child.

We recommend this ophthalmology investigation for children between 6 months and 1 year, then every 2 years throughout childhood, even if you do not notice anything wrong with their eyes.

I noticed one of their eyes is dropping. is it serious?

The correct position of the eyes is parallel. An intermittent or permanent deviation makes the eyes not work well together. It is very important that vision in both eyes develops normally, from the first years of childhood. It is good to know that, in most cases, wearing properly prescribed glasses, following an ophthalmology check-up, helps children to align their position and their vision to be clear. For how long you need to wear your glasses  is a question only an ophthalmologist can answer, during the consultation.

My child has myopia and his/her dioptres keep increasing. what can i do?

Myopia usually develops up to the age of 18, during which time the diopters increase as the eyeball grows, which is more pronounced than it should be. There are a number of effective ways to control the growth of myopia and at Clario we have long-term programs in this regard. Please access the Myopia Progression Control section described above.

Copilul meu are miopie și îi cresc dioptriile mereu, ce pot face?

Până acum nu s-a descoperit vreo metodă care sa prevină sau să încetinească evoluția cataractei. Din fericire însă, tehnologia a evoluat foarte mult, făcând din operația de cataractă una foarte sigură și cu rezultate extraordinare mai ales atunci când este făcută la timp.

Operația se face în ambulator, fără internare și cu anestezie locală. Deși nu-ți putem înlătura teama normală de o intervenție chirurgicală, putem și facem totul ca aceasta să fie o experiență confortabilă și cu rezultate pe care să le apreciezi pentru mult timp.

Cataracta poate recidiva?

La un procent de 20-30% dintre pacienții operați de cataractă, la un interval cuprins între câteva luni și câtiva ani după intervenție poate să apară scăderea vederii prin cataractă secundară. Nu este o complicație a operației. Ea nu afectează cristalinul artificial și apare datorită fibrozării capsulei cristaliniene.

Rezolvarea acestei situații se face printr-o intervenție în cabinet cu laser, nedureroasă, rapidă și care duce la restabilirea vederii, așa cum a fost după operația de cataractă.

Ce complicații pot apărea după operație?

Trebuie sa știi că, la fel ca pentru orice intervenție, chirurgia cataractei implică riscuri legate de infecție și sângerare. Riscurile operației sunt mai mari la pacienții care au asociate și alte boli oculare (miopie mare, retinopatie diabetică, glaucom avansat, cataractă hipermatură) sau generale (hipertensiune severă, coagulopatii).

Complicațiile intraoperatorii care pot apărea: ruperea capsulei posterioare a cristalinului, pierderea de material vitros, luxarea cristalinului în vitros, dislocarea cristalinului artificial, hemoragia supracoroidiană. Complicații posibile postoperatorii care pot să apară sunt infecții, sângerare, dezlipire de retină, creșterea tensiunii intraoculare, îngroșarea retinei sau a corneei.

În condițiile unei evaluări corecte preoperatorii, a unei tehnici chirurgicale corecte, având aparatură perfomantă și, foarte important – prin respectarea cu strictețe a indicațiilor medicului chirurg atât intraoperator cât și postoperator, marea majoritate a complicațiilor pot fi prevenite și/sau tratate cu succes.

Sunt necesare analize înainte de operație? Ce anume?

Este necesar să faci înainte de operație o serie de teste pentru evaluarea stării de sănătate (control cardiologic, EKG, măsurarea tensiunii arteriale, analize de sange).

În timpul consultației oftalmologice preoperatorii (cu câteva zile înainte de operație) medicul oftalmolog iți va face un examen detaliat al ochiului, pentru a ști care este starea lui. Uneori sunt necesare investigatii speciale pentru a evalua retina, nervul optic (tomografie, ecografie oculara, etc.)

Ce tehnologie folosiți?

La Clario operăm cataracta cu ultimul model de facoemulsificator american Alcon Centurion și cel mai performant microscop chirurgical german, Zeiss Lumera. Mesele chirurgicale sunt de la Brumaba, brand renumit pentru confortul oferit pacienților și versatilitatea lor.
