Strabismus Treatment


When a person cannot align both of their eyes on a single object at the same time, this condition is known as strabismus. Early intervention is advised because it is not something children will "grow out of." Dr. Deutsch is specially trained to remedy this condition. Learn More about Strabismus Treatment

Child and Adult Cataract Surgery


While most people think of cataracts as a condition that afflicts the elderly, children can also have cataracts, which are a clouding of the lens in the eye. Dr. Deutsch can perform cataract surgery on patients both young and old to correct this vision problem. Learn More about Child and Adult Cataract Surgery
