As an orthoptist, I am able to help both physicians and patients understand disorders of the binocular vision system and help manage problems associated with it like double vision, lazy eye and eye strain. Patients with these problems are so appreciative of my ability to teach them about their problems and to help in such a way that truly does improve the quality of their day-to-day lives; this makes my job incredibly rewarding every day.
