Children's Orthoptic (Sight) Service Manchester

The Community Orthoptic service provides an investigation, diagnostic and treatment service for all children with a known or suspected visual problem, squint or defect of binocular function.

The service is available to children of all ages. A child is never too young to be examined or start treatment. Babies of 3-4 months can even be tested and treated.

Details of local clinics are given in the Useful Documents on the left of this page.  All clinics are by appointment only.
