Dayton Children’s is proud to collaborate with many health care organizations that provide care to our patients. While we do not currently employ any ophthalmologists we do partner with many community providers to help manage the health of your child's vision. For more information please ask your community doctor if they have an affiliation with or perform surgery at Dayton Children’s.
