The Vanderbilt Eye Institute's doctors and nurses are highly trained in caring for children's eyes and vision. Our specialized team provides surgery to treat children and teenagers who have cataracts, crossed eyes or intraocular tumors.
In partnership with The Tennessee Lions Club, we also evaluate and treat children who fail routine vision screenings.
Through Project PAVE we provide comprehensive clinical low vision services to children ages 3 to 21 in local education agencies (LEAs) of Tennessee and the Tennessee School for the Blind.

Vanderbilt's eye care team includes seven doctors fellowship-trained in pediatric ophthalmology and three doctors trained in pediatric optometry. Our team also includes ophthalmology subspecialists with expertise in pediatric retina, glaucoma, uveitis, cornea and oculoplastics. We have the most training of any pediatric eye care team within 200 miles of Middle Tennessee.
Our expertise and convenient locations mean your child receives outstanding care, close to home.
Our doctors perform a high number of eye-muscle surgery to correct strabismus. Your child receives the best possible care before, during and after surgery.
