World Orthoptic Day at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital

Monday 2nd June 2014 is World Orthoptic Day. This is an annual event which raises awareness of the orthoptic profession and to promote the activities of orthoptists locally, nationally, and internationally.

Orthoptics is the study or treatment of irregularities of the eyes, especially those of the eye muscles that prevent normal binocular vision.

The day marks the unity of the Orthoptic community around the world.

It is an opportunity to recognise the work that orthoptists do for their patients and the ophthalmic community.

The OrtOrthoptics Dayhoptic department at MREH has a stand in the atrium today, with lots of information and members of staff to chat to about orthoptics and answer any questions you may have.
