Orthoptics is an ophthalmic field pertaining to the evaluation and treatment of patients with disorders of the visual system with an emphasis on binocular vision and eye movements. Orthoptists are uniquely skilled in diagnostic techniques.
Orthoptists commonly work in pediatric ophthalmology settings. Orthoptists serve patients of all ages, but because of the nature of many binocular disorders, the majority of patients are children. Adult care in the field of Orthoptics is uniquely challenging and rewarding, found in settings of ophthalmology specific to neuro-ophthalmology and adult eye muscle disorders. Orthoptists are key members of a team whose goal is to provide evaluation, understanding and treatment to children and adults with disorders affecting visual function. Orthoptics combines diagnostic ability, technical understanding and therapeutic skills. This health care profession encourages decision-making and an active involvement in patient care.
