Treatment for optic nerve hypoplasia will involve the coordinated efforts of a team of healthcare professionals, including your child’s paediatrician, endocrinologist, neurologists, ophthalmologists and other healthcare staff. Our dedicated staff at The Aga Khan University Hospital works tirelessly to ensure that your child receives individualized treatment and care to provide relief from the symptoms.
Vision therapy, occupational therapy, and hormone replacement therapy are some treatment options to help your child manage symptoms of optic nerve hypoplasia. In some cases, patching the child’s stronger eye helps to force the weaker eye to improve vision, while in yet other cases, wearing spectacles may be useful.
Early intervention will help your child get around and lead his/ her life in as practical a manner as possible. Patience and persistence in following through with recommended therapies can yield positive results.
