Children’s Eye Care has partnered with the Children’s Hospital of Michigan to run their Department of Ophthalmology. Through that involvement we offer pediatric ophthalmology training for the ophthalmology residents of Kresge Eye Institute, Beaumont Eye Institute, Henry Ford Health System and the Michigan State University Ophthalmology Consortium.
The residents are exposed to a wide variety of pediatric eye conditions under supervision by fellowship trained ophthalmic subspecialists. Children are referred from the many pediatric specialty clinics at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan as well as from pediatricians and ophthalmologists throughout metropolitan Detroit and the state of Michigan. The residents gain experience in performing comprehensive pediatric eye examinations and advanced surgical skills for pediatric ophthalmology conditions. The clinical staff includes nine fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologists, a fellowship-trained cornea specialist, a fellowship-trained retina specialist, three board-certified orthoptists and a board-certified ocularist.
