Orthoptists diagnose and treat defects of vision and abnormalities in a patient’s eye movement, such as visual performance, double vision and squints.

All orthoptists are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, the independent UK-wide health regulator which sets standards of professional training, performance and conduct for orthoptists and other health professionals.
