About Us

Vision is a gift - and our passion. Here in the Vision Center at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, we believe every child deserves to see the sunset. The Vision Center - formerly called the Division of Ophthalmology - is one of the world's largest, most respected pediatric facilities for eye care, treating more than 12,000 patients each year. Our patients have such complex ophthalmic abnormalities such as optic nerve hypoplasia, retinoblastoma, retinopathy of prematurity, cornea disorders, glaucoma, strabismus and ocular trauma.

As one of Childrens Hospital's Centers of Excellence, we are home to six institutes that are considered among today's finest resources for diagnosis, treatment and research:

Each is headed by a board certified pediatric ophthalmologist.

With today's advanced technologies, surgical techniques and other treatment options, eyesight often can be saved. Please allow us to provide you with the most up-to-date information so you can make an informed decision for your child's care.
