Orthoptists diagnose and treat problems affecting how eye structures develop and how the brain controls eye movements. Issues can involve the muscles around the eye, the nerves connecting the eye and the brain or the cells that make vision develop.
Orthoptists focus on improving and treating eye disorders and visual impairments such as double vision, reduced vision and squint. They also investigate neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. Orthoptists work with a variety of age groups ranging from children to elderly.
