Pediatric ophthalmologists are concerned with the visual needs of children. Dr. Peter Speigel is a board certified fellowship trained pediatric specialist who brings years of experience to Inland Eye Specialists. The developing visual system of children's eyes is susceptible to problems not found in the eyes of adults. Approximately four decades ago pediatric ophthalmology as a medical specialty began with the awareness that the unique conditions seen in children demanded specific areas of knowledge and expertise.
Dr. Speigel is an expert in the treatment of misalignment of the eyes; referred to as strabismus. Strabismus is common in children and consists of the eyes turning inward or outward or even being vertically misaligned. A number of factors may cause strabismus including high refractive error (the need for glasses), poor vision in one or both eyes, or trauma. In some cases of childhood strabismus, no clear cause is evident. Rarely, life-threatening conditions such as brain tumors may manifest as strabismus. The examination of a child with strabismus focuses on determining the visual function in each eye and the nature of the specific kind of ocular misalignment. Glasses or other treatments may be prescribed as a first step. Surgical treatments to align the eyes are sometimes required for strabismus. This involves surgery on the extraocular muscles to strengthen or weaken their actions on the eye's rotation.
Cataract patients now have an option for excellent near and far vision after cataract surgery! Previously, individuals suffering from cataracts had only a mono-focal lens implant option after surgery. New multifocal IOL technology can now decrease dependence on glasses after surgery and give you a much broader range of vision. If you are seeking IOL lens options in Temecula, consult one of our qualified and experienced Inland Eye Specialists' surgeons to help you see better!Cataract Surgery
