Quick Reference 

Our office is primarily devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of eye problems in children. We have a special interest in the treatment of Strabismus (eye muscle problems such as crossed eyes), Amblyopia or lazy eye, Ptosis or drooping eyelids and Nystagmus. There are also a large number of other diseases that affect children's eyes including cataracts, glaucoma, retinal diseases and genetic disorders. 

Routine eye exams are performed and we recommend that every child have at least a thorough eye screening by age four years. Families with a history of amblyopia (or lazy eye) should have their children examined by age two years. Dr. Hinrichsen spends a great deal of time keeping up with the latest treatments, innovations and advances in the field of pediatric ophthalmology, allowing you to access the most current methods of treating your child's eye problem. Although our office primarily sees patients from birth to age 18 years, we also see adults over age 18 who have double vision (diplopia) or eye muscle problems. Surgery and other treatments are often beneficial for these patients, regardless of age. 

Dr. Hinrichsen also sees patients at the Louisiana Eye & Laser Pineville office. To schedule an appointment call 1-800-437-0153.
