Division of Ophthalmology

New Location Reminder: If you previously had outpatient ophthalmology appointments at CHOP’s Specialty Care & Surgery Center in Voorhees, NJ, please remember that we’ve moved to the Specialty Care Center at Virtua. The new location is located in the Virtua Health & Wellness Center at 200 Bowman Drive. Call us at 215-590-2791 with any questions.

Children with a wide range of eye and vision problems come to the Division of Ophthalmology for comprehensive evaluation, coordinated care and cutting-edge treatment. As one of the leading pediatric ophthalmology centers in the U.S., children travel here for treatment of eye misalignment, abnormal eye movements, lazy eye, poor visual function, and less common pediatric eye conditions such as glaucoma or cataracts.
