Orthoptics

Orthoptics

 

Orthoptists are Allied Health Professionals who are trained to investigate, diagnose and treat eye movement and visual development disorders.

This includes squint (strabismus), lazy eye (amblyopia), refractive errors (long sight, short sight and astigmatism) and double vision (diplopia).

The Orthoptists work closely with the Consultant Ophthalmologists, Optometrists and nurses and are part of a number of multi-disciplinary teams working across our Hospitals.   

 

4ward is our Trustwide culture change programme which is helping us build a more positive, supportive workplace for the benefit of our patients and colleagues. At its heart are our four 4ward Behaviours.
