Orthoptics 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. There are five areas of treatment for orthoptic problems:
- Corrective lenses (spherical, cylindrical lens, prismatic and Fresnel lenses)
- Strabismic-related orthoptics as an “eye exercise” is limited to the treatment of eye coordination problems by increasing the range of binocular fusion
- Pharmaceuticals, such as cycloplegics
