The orthoptics department is comprised of 8 orthoptists:
- 6 tenured orthoptists: Laurence Belluc, Marie Christine Jallaguier, Julie Thezelais Pelat, Mathilde Viguier, Ludovic Manenc and Florent Nicolet.
- 2 temporary orthoptists: Chantal Faure, Isabelle Cachelet
The orthoptics department receives, by appointment, from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to midday and from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to midday.
Appointments can be fixed on site or by calling 05 63 03 03 04
All aspects of orthoptics are covered
- assessment of visual disorder screening accompanied by baby vision in infants
- assessment in the context of visual fatigue, headaches, balance disorders and rehabilitation of oculomotor deficits such as convergence insufficiency, heterophorias and intermittent strabismus
- assessment and follow-up of strabismus and oculomotor paralysis
- Treatment of visual deficits such as amblyopia (low visual acuity in one eye: this needs to be treated as early as possible since this deficit can no longer be corrected if the child is over 6 or 7 years).
The orthoptics department also supports patients with “low vision” to help them adopt visual strategies to make best use of their remaining visual function.
Our orthoptists are actively involved in ophthalmological consultations, making many additional tests for the diagnosis and / or monitoring of eye diseases:
- Visual fields (automatic or Goldmann)
- Study of colour vision
- Electrophysiology (ERG, VEP, EOG)
- Corneal topography
(These examinations must be interpreted by an ophthalmologist)
