Orthoptics and Low Vision services at Bradford Teaching Hospitals are a department allied to Ophthalmology. We specialise in the investigation and treatment of defects of binocular vision, visual development and eye movement in all age groups.

As part of a busy hospital eye care team, we also provide low vision aid, Glaucoma and visual fields clinics and orthoptic assessment of adults with learning disability. In addition, a comprehensive primary school screening programme for visual defects is run by the Department.

As a result of our diverse skill mix and experience, we have research interests ranging from epidemiology, quality of life and genetics to applied health research.

To provide high quality research into Amblyopia (poor vision) and related eye conditions to better understand and improve eye healthcare.
