The best care in sight, at Legacy Devers Eye Institute

Young eyes require dedicated care. At Legacy Devers Eye Institute, you will find doctors who specialize in children’s eyecare (pediatric ophthalmology). Your concerns about your child’s vision or eye-related problems are our concerns as well. We will work with you as a team committed to providing the best possible care for your child. 

Our children’s eye specialists are experienced in all aspects of eye-related conditions. They conduct eye exams; perform surgeries to treat weak eye muscles, wandering eyes, retinal problems and other issues; diagnose eye problems related to juvenile diabetes or juvenile rheumatoid arthritis; and diagnose visual processing disorders.   

Located on the same campus as Randall Children’s Hospital, Legacy Devers Eye Institute sees children of all ages, from infant to young adult. 

Conditions We Treat

Some of the conditions our specialists treat include:  

  • Amblyopia and strabismus, or “lazy eye” and eye muscle problems 
  • Retinopathy in premature infants  
  • Blocked tear ducts  
  • Cataracts in children  
  • Eye problems associated with systemic disease and neurologic conditions 
  • Iritis (inflammation of the iris—the colored part of the eye surrounding the pupil.) Our pediatric eye professionals work closely with Randall Children’s Rheumatology to identify and treat this condition. 

What Can You Expect?

A trip to the doctor’s office or hospital can make you and your child a little nervous. Our care team is here to help and put all of you at ease.  

Before your appointment, you’ll be given instructions that will help your visit go smoothly. We’ll need to find out important information related to your child’s condition such as how long the symptoms have been occurring and any medications your child takes. On the day of your doctor’s visit, you and your child will be attended to by a care team experienced in working with children, young adults and their families.
