What is orthoptics?

We study your vision, eye movements and your ability to use your eyes as a pair. We treat all ages – from babies to the elderly. We take referrals from:

  • Ophthalmologists
  • GPs
  • Optometrists
  • Paediatricians
  • Neurologists
  • Other professionals

When you visit us, we will take a detailed medical and eye history and we will perform an examination using various tests. This helps us to make an individual treatment plan for you.  We may arrange further investigations by other professionals.

Please note: Following the closure of Essex County Hospital, these services were transferred to the Primary Care Centre (PCC) from Friday 30th November 2018 . Please click here for travel information for the PCC.
