The specialty of orthoptics deals diagnostically and therapeutically with all types of eye movement disorders. One focus is on disorders of binocular vision, which often manifests as strabismus. In children, untreated strabismus can lead to permanent visual impairment (amblyopia). It is the result of disturbed development of vision in normal neural conditions. With appropriate treatment, childhood amblyopia can be prevented or treated in the best case. Often the strabismus can be corrected and amblyopia can be eliminated with suitable glasses.
