Orthoptics

Orthoptics is the study of eye and vision problems including vision development, eye co-ordination, eye misalignment, and near-focussing issues.

Experienced orthoptists work as part of your eye care team at your local Ramsay hospital. They see patients who may be experiencing symptoms such as blurred or double vision or who may have outward vision problems, such as misalignment or uncontrolled eye movement.

Our orthoptists are fully trained in the management and correction of eye vision issues. They use the latest tests, offer comprehensive treatment options, and provide useful advice on eye conditions and their management.

If eye surgery is required, they can seamlessly refer patients on to consultant ophthalmologists within the team. They often assist with laser and minor surgical procedures for continuity of care.
