Children's Mercy’s team of pediatric ophthalmologists, optometrists, and orthoptists work together to provide the highest quality, specialty eye care in children. At this time, the ophthalmology clinic is focusing on care for patients with medical eye conditions in children of all ages. The team also provides routine eye care including glasses and contact lenses for children with other medical conditions and children 9 years of age and younger. If your child’s primary care doctor or another provider suspects an eye concern, they will send a referral for you to see a Children’s Mercy eye specialist.
We provide vision care services at three eye clinics with state-of-the-art equipment and an optical shop at each location. Eye surgeries are performed at Children’s Mercy Kansas City and Children’s Mercy Hospital Kansas.
