Orthoptic Low Vision Services What does an orthoptist do?
Traditionally, orthoptists have been involved in the assessment and management of issues that affect a person’s eye movement. In the past, orthoptists commonly worked with people experiencing strabismus (where the eyes may not look in exactly the same direction at the same time), double vision, and amblyopia (sometimes referred to as ‘lazy eye’).
Today, orthoptists have an expanded scope of practice including research, ophthalmic care, and more. Our orthoptists can offer education, assessment and consultation to ensure your lifestyle and environment are optimised to your vision level or abilities.
