The event will be chaired by 2 specialist Orthoptists. You will have the opportunity to hear why they picked Orthoptics as a career, discuss what their jobs entail and show videos and images of the kind of work they do.

The session will be interactive so there will be lots of opportunity to ask questions about what it is like to train and to be an Orthoptist and the qualifications you need for this career.

We look forward to seeing you on the day!

Orthoptists are the experts in diagnosing and treating defects in eye movement and problems with how the eyes work together, called binocular vision. These can be caused by issues with the muscles around the eyes or defects in the nerves enabling the brain to communicate with the eyes.
