Welcome to the Orthoptic and Children’s Eye Clinic

The Orthoptic and Children’s Eye Clinic is based at St James University Hospital, providing a range of Orthoptic services and doctor led adult motility and children's eye clinics within the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT) and for Leeds Community Healthcare.

What we do

Orthoptists form part of the eye care team working alongside Ophthalmologists and Optometrists. Being part of a multidisciplinary team we also support other hospital based departments offering our specialised knowledge in order to help diagnose and manage complex cases.

Orthoptists are autonomous professionals who provide direct patient care for adults and children, monitor specific eye conditions and initiate therapies where appropriate.

 In children's eye clinics you may need to see an orthoptist, optometrist and an ophthalmologist.
