Become an orthoptist: an eye therapist who assesses, diagnoses and treats eye disorders. Orthoptics is currently experiencing high workforce demand. The two-year Master of Orthoptics requires you to have a prior undergraduate degree in any discipline. This program is unique in NSW, is only one of two degrees offered Australia wide and is your path into a rewarding career as a health professional.
To improve detection and recognition of visual and ocular changes in patients diagnosed with stroke, Orthoptist and UTS PhD candidate Michelle Courtney-Harris has completed validation processes which lead to refinement of a vision screening tool developed by Neryla Jolly.
The official opening of the UTS:Orthoptics clinic was joined by fellow clinicians, students and staff. UTS: Orthoptics used the event to say a big ‘thank you’ to those who have supported the discipline and taken on students as part of the clinical placement component.
