Pediatric ophthalmology is a subspecialty of ophthalmology managing youngsters' eye infections. The human visual framework creates as the mind develops a procedure that takes around ten years. In spite of the fact that an infant's eyes are optically equipped for seeing, newborn child vision is restricted to around 20/1500 (the capacity to see the states of individuals yet not their elements), to some degree in light of the fact that the cerebrum has not figured out how to handle the visual messages it gets. As visual advancement continues, that same youngster will in the end have the capacity to recognize the finest subtle elements in a picture.

Track Description

We cordially welcome the scientific communities from across the globe to participate in Global Pediatric Ophthalmology Congress which is to be held during June 05-06, 2017 at Milan, Italy.

Pediatric Ophthalmology conference is an International scientific gathering organized to debate the significance of pediatric vision and to enlighten the issues connected with pediatric vision.  This annual gathering of Pediatric Ophthalmologists, eye care professionals, clinicians, academia and students at Milan aims to provide an insight about the latest advancement and treatment modalities in the field of ophthalmology and other associated prospects.

Track 1: Pediatric Ophthalmology and Research

Pediatric Ophthalmology & Research also focuses on highlighted issues which affect the pediatric vision such as pediatric uveitis, genetic eye disease, developmental abnormalities and more. It is a vision development disorder which is also known as lazy eye. Amblyopia is an eye problem which emerges in kids can also be present in adults. The mechanism of this condition includes the differences of vision in both eyes i.e. the vision in one is weaker to compare to other. It is recommended to have regular vision screening of your child to avoid permanent vision damage. The initial symptoms include abnormal tilting, movements of the eye and improper alignment of both the eyes.

Track 2: Pediatric Optometry & Research

Pediatric Optometry and Research dedicated to the experts of Optometry and Vision Science of children. Pediatric optometric care performs the investigation such as comprehensive eye exams, binocular vision exams, low vision exams, dry eye and contact lens.

Track 3: Pediatric Low Vision

Low vision as the name indicates the condition linked with abnormal or low eye sight which interferes the daily functioning of a child. Pediatric Low vision could be a cause of various eye diseases such as pediatric glaucoma, pediatric cataract etc. Low vision exam of pediatric is differs based on the age of the child. Visual acuity, refractive error, visual field, eye muscle function and color vision disorders are the consideration taken by pediatric ophthalmologists to find out the visual function of a child.

Track 4: Refractive Errors and Management

The colorful image of the world that our eye project is depends on how our eyes refract the light into the lens. The refraction of the light rays causes the refractive error which is occurred due to the optical imperfections that hinders the eye from projecting the light and ultimately produces the blurred vision. Astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness are the common refractive errors.  The primary causes of the refractive errors are eye length, curvature of the cornea and curvature of the lens.

Track 5: Pediatric Cataracts

A cataract is a turbid or opaque region in the lens of the eye situated at the rear of iris inside the eye. The blurry and dull image will develop due to dense lens of the eye through which the light rays passed and shattered through the cloudy lens.  Children can have a congenital (birth) cataract or can develop later in life. As per the records and estimation it is noted that one in every 250 children may get a cataract either before to birth or during their growth after birth.  A cataract can affect either one or both the eyes.

Track 6: Pediatric Glaucoma

Pediatric Glaucoma is comparative rare. Primary infantile/primary congenital glaucoma occurs at a rate of approximately one in ten thousand.   Glaucoma represents a group of diseases which is characterized by the damage to the optic nerve which often occurs with the very high pressure in the eye. The damage of the optic nerve can lead to severe vision loss.  Elderly patients are more prone to glaucoma but it can develop at any age. There are different signs and symptoms are associated with infants and Childrens than adults. Large eyes, excessive tearing and cloudy eyes are the signs of glaucoma in children under age 2.

Track 7: Pediatric Neuro-Ophthalmology

As your youngster's vision framework builds up, the conclusion and treatment of conditions that influence the eyes is intricate on the grounds that neurological complexities might add to issues with sight and eye capacity. Neuro-ophthalmology is a subspecialty of neurology and ophthalmology, requiring mastery in the working of the eye and the muscles and nerves that control the eye. "Because of the liberal representation of the afferent visual framework inside of the cerebrum, neurological infection might upset vision as a displaying side effect or as an optional impact of the illness. Then again, early formative aggravations of vision frequently disturb visual engine control frameworks, offering ascend to complex issue, for example, nystagmus, strabismus, and torticollis. The signs and manifestations of neurological illness are subtle by their extremely nature, showing a bewildering symptomatic test. Neurological pharmaceuticals and neurosurgical medications can create neuro-ophthalmological brokenness that can be hard to recognize from malady movement. Influenced patients might encounter significant deferrals in conclusion, and are regularly subjected to broad (and costly) indicative testing.

Track 8: Pediatric Ocular Surgery

Shockingly, youngsters can be troubled with issues of the eyelid, tear channel framework and eye attachment, for example, a traumatic damage, a tumor or inborn conception imperfection. Abundance tearing from the eye is not exceptional in kids. The tear channel is situated in the internal corner of the eyelids and keeps running into the nose. Lamentably around 5% of newborn children are conceived with an intrinsic blockage of the tear channel. At the point when this is available, infants will create abundance tears trickling from the eye alongside incidental release frame the eye and crusting along the lashes. The eyelids capacity to ensure the soundness of the eye. However in the event that an eyelid does not shape legitimately will prompt eyelid anomalies and after that it can affect visual advancement. An inherent saggy eyelid, Ptosis, most regularly happens in light of the fact that the muscle inside the eyelid that lifts the cover did not previous appropriately. Orbital issues are not that normal in kids. He circle is the boney attachment in the skull that houses the eye and all the related structures that offer the eye some assistance with functioning. The most widely recognized issue to influence the eye attachment in youngsters is intense bacterial diseases, most usually spreading from a neighboring sinus contamination.

Track 9: Ocular Oncology

The diverse malignant tumors of the eye and encompassing structures go under visual oncology where the screening and determination of the tumors is done. Retinoblastoma is the most widely recognized tumor of the eye happen in youngsters.

Track 10: Dissociated vertical deviation (DVD)

Dissociated vertical deviation (DVD) is an eye condition which happens in relationship with a squint, regularly childish esotropia. The definite reason is obscure in spite of the fact that it is sensible to expect it is from defective innervation of eye muscles. DVD normally gets to be evident between year and a half and three years old. DVD is frequently confused for over-activity of the mediocre diagonal additional visual muscles. DVD can be uncovered on visual development testing when one eye is blocked by the nose on horizontal look. This eye will then lift, mimicking a substandard sideways over activity. However in a one-sided case, over action of the unrivaled rectus muscle in the unaffected overwhelming eye can be a bringing on element and additionally creating a V design exophoria .In this session causes, indications, determination, impacts and treatment techniques for DVD will be talked about.

Track 11: Retina and Retinal Disorders

The retina is a very thin layer of tissue within back mass of your eye. Retina & Eye contains a huge number of light-touchy cells and other nerve cells that get and sort out visual data. Your retina sends this data to your cerebrum through your optic nerve, empowering you to see. Retinal degenerative issue, for example, Age-related macular degeneration and Myopic macular degeneration influencing youthful and old from numerous societies, races and ethnicities. The focal territory of the retina contains a high thickness of shading delicate photoreceptor cells called cones which are in charge of shading vision and subsequently any deformity and modification in the focal zone of the retina will prompt Color vision imperfections.

Market Analysis

Overall market trend of ophthalmology:

After a huge downfall of the market during economic drain in 2008-2009, ophthalmology market is catching up to get back to the normal as there is a rapid growth in population resulting in increased number of patients with eye diseases. And the incidence of cataract and glaucoma are increasing every year.

According to a study it is estimated that around 48% of world population is blind because of cataract and more than 60 million people suffer from glaucoma and it is estimated that the number would rise to 80 million by the end of 2020. Ageing population is the leading cause for refractive error problem in countries like the USA and Europe, it is noticed that the refractive error problem is mostly seen in population ageing more than 40 years.

Ophthalmology market is mainly divided in to four segments viz, surgical devices, diagnostic and monitoring devices, vision care and ophthalmic drugs.
