Orthoptics

We are a small team of orthoptists, ophthalmologists, secretaries and a neurologist with enthusiasm for the following specialties 

  • Pediatric Ophthalmology (eye diseases in childhood)
  • Strabismus (squint)
  • Amblyopia therapy (treatment of weak-sightedness in childhood)
  • Eye movement disorders
  • Diseases of the eye socket (orbit)
  • Afferent disorders (disease between the optic nerve and visual cortex)
  • Efferent disorders (paralysis, eye muscle diseases, disorders of slow and fast eye movements)
  • Disturbances of the pupil
  • Virtigo

The diagnostics and therapy of these special conditions are often interdisciplinary. We therefore have close cooperations with specialists from neurology, neuroradiology, neuropaediatrics, cranio-maxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery, radiooncology, endocrinology and human genetics, among others.
