For Patients & Parents

The Orbit & Eye Institute in the Vision Center of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles is dedicated to providing children and their families with the latest treatment strategies for strabismus, a disorder that causes one eye to be misaligned with the other when focusing, and for amblyopia, loss of vision in one eye. We also treat adult strabismus. Led by Angela Buffenn, MD, our medical team is on the forefront of research for ocular misalignment.

We address each patient’s situation individually to design an appropriate treatment program, which may include, for example, a combination of eyeglasses, patching or surgery.

Childrens Hospital Los Angeles provides many supportive services for patients and families. If you need anything during your stay with us, please ask any member of our staff.

This information will help you to navigate the hospital experience and become more familiar with your child’s condition, so you can make more informed decisions. We understand how difficult it can be to find reliable background on rare eye disorders. Our website connects you to helpful information on research, as well as to organizations in partnership with the Vision Center who may be able to answer to answer your questions.
