About Orthoptic Therapy

What is Orthoptic Therapy?

Orthoptic therapy is an individualized treatment program prescribed to eliminate or improve conditions such as lazy eye (amblyopia), crossed eyes (strabismus), focusing, eyeteaming and tracking disorders. Special lenses, prisms, filters and instruments are used, along with an advanced computer system.

Orthoptic therapy involves weekly office visits, during which carefully selected and sequenced activities are practiced by the patient. This treatment often restores normal strength, flexibility and function to the focusing system and can lead to a complete relieve of all symptoms.
