Strabismus, also known as crossed or turned eye, is the medical term used when the two eyes are not straight. It occurs in approximately 2 to 4 percent of the population.

Retinopathy of Prematurity

Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is a disease of the retina affecting prematurely born babies.

Congenital Cataracts

A congenital cataract is an opacity (cloudiness) of the lens of the eye that is present at, or develops shortly after, birth.
