In addition to detailed information that can be found on the International and Destination Medicine home page, the following information may be helpful to patients traveling to Houston to seek care with Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus.
How to prepare for your visit
Send or bring records from your local Ophthalmologist, preferably in English.
If you need surgery, plan to be in Houston for one week after surgery and be able to return for future follow up or make arrangements with a local ophthalmologist, who we will need to speak with prior to surgery.
We will provide a translator in your preferred language if we know in advance.
Peters’ anomaly is a condition that causes the cornea, the clear window in the front of the eye, to be opaque or cloudy rather than clear. This clouding of the cornea can block the development of vision.
A blocked tear duct is also known as nasolacrimal duct obstruction. It is a blockage of the eye’s natural tear drainage system. Tears can “back up” and overflow onto the cheek instead of draining through the tear duct in the eye.
