What makes the Ophthalmology Department at Scott & White special?

Our pediatric ophthalmology specialist is specially trained to treat children and works collaboratively with your child’s primary care physician or pediatrician to ensure your child has the best treatment plan to ensure the health of his or her eyes.

If your child needs to be hospitalized, McLane Children’s Hospital Scott & White helps soothe children’s and parents’ anxieties through a family-centered care approach, where each child’s needs are the primary focus.

How do I schedule an appointment with a pediatric ophthalmologist?

If your primary care physician or pediatrician believes your child may need to see a pediatric ophthalmology specialist, call 254-724-EYES (3937), toll free at 866-297-EYES (3937).

If your child is a Scott & White Health Plan patient, you will be referred to a pediatric ophthalmology specialist if your child’s physician believes a visit is necessary.

Some other health plans may require a referral prior to seeing a pediatric ophthalmologist. Contact your insurance company to learn about your child’s coverage.
