ORTHOPTICS


Orthoptics (from the Greek words ortho meaning "straight", and optikas meaning "vision" is a discipline dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of defective eye movement and coordination (such as nystagmus), binocular vision, and amblyopia by eye care professionals.[2]. There are five areas of treatment for orthoptic problems:

  • corrective lenses (spherical, prismatic and Fresnel lenses)
  • vision therapy (strabismic-related, not behavioural optometry), which can include eye exercises
  • eyepatching
  • pharmaceuticals, such as cycloplegics
  • surgery

However the term orthoptics is sometimes used to refer simply to eye exercises which are a component of strabismic-related vision therapy.
