Research – Member’s Area
Orthoptics is a small profession, but many BIOS members are very active in collecting the evidence that helps us help our patients, as well as advancing vision science. British orthoptists are among the world leaders in our field. We publish and present our research in international journals and at professional conferences around the world. Orthoptists have secured many millions of pounds in research funding for major projects.
Most of us went into Orthoptics because we wanted to help patients, but some of us get hooked on research and carry it out research at every level, right from small local projects to world class lab science.
