What does an Orthoptist do?

Orthoptists diagnose and treat defects of vision & abnormalities of eye movement; now all have a first degree on entering the profession.

Usually part of a hospital team, they look after people with eye problems - often related to binocular vision, amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (squint).

Find out more on our minisite, Parallel Vision Problems.
