Orthoptics is the study of sight and coordination in the eyes.
Orthoptists are part of the wider ophthalmology healthcare team, working with your ophthalmologist to provide expert knowledge on a range of eye movement disorders and children's visual development. We diagnose and manage patients of all ages in a variety of clinical settings including in hospital, community clinics and schools, and may work either independently or as part of a multi-professional and/or multi-disciplinary team.
Orthoptists provide expert knowledge to various specialties across the trust, playing an active role in improving patients‛ health and wellbeing.
