The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Orthoptics and Children’s Eye Clinic

st jam
The Orthoptic and Children’s Eye Clinic is based at St James's Hospital and provides a range of Orthoptic services and doctor led adult motility and children's eye clinics within the Leeds Teaching Hospitals and for Leeds Community Healthcare.

What we do

Orthoptists are 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 specialist knowledge to help diagnose and manage patients with complex conditions.

Orthoptists are healthcare professionals who work independently to care for both adults and children. They specialise in monitoring a range of different eye conditions and provide treatments and therapies for these conditions.

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