Paediatric Ophthalmology

Dr. Ravindra Bathu

Children may not understand if they have a problem of vision with one or sometimes both the eyes. We conduct a routine eye check-up in 30 schools in and around East Bangalore every year free of cost to detect early signs of poor vision (refractive errors), squint and amblyopia (lazy eyes)

Dr. Ravindra Battu, our Consultant doctor in Paediatric Ophthalmology is available for consultation at ZMEC, Kalyan Nagar every Wednesday between 8 am to 10 am. Please call for appointment.

  • Refractive error or the need for glasses for correcting vision impairment in children. 

  • Squint correction. Treatment may include glasses, eye exercises or eye muscle surgery.

  • Lazy eye or amblyopia occurs when the child has poor vision in one of the eyes. Lazy eye can result from refractive error, squint or several other causes. This needs to be identified and treated at an early age to recover vision.
