Course Summary:
Orthoptics is a small, highly specialised branch of eye care. Orthoptists largely work in the NHS within the acute hospital setting or within community health care. The correction of amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (squint) makes up the majority of their work with children. Orthoptists also work in the care and management of patients with conditions that include brain injury, diabetes, stroke, low vision and glaucoma. They work closely with Ophthalmologists and Optometrists as well as a wide range of other professionals such as maxillo facial surgeons, neurologists and contribute to multidisciplinary teams. If you are interested in health care, people and particularly children then Orthoptics may be the perfect career for you. The programme involves learning with other health care professionals and students should receive a truly multidisciplinary experience throughout their four years of study. On successful completion of the degree students can be registered with the Health Professions Council . They can also apply to become members of the British and Irish Orthoptic Society.

Glasgow was incredible, I was genuinely surprised when I arrived here. Don’t believe the hype, Glasgow is a bustling metropolis with loads of amazing bars, coffee shops and markets (The Barras is a godsend for decorating your flat) to whittle down your student loan. Caledonian is also a lovely university – I was seriously impressed by their support services, they were very accommodating and helped me out with bursaries and applying for various schemes. They were really dedicated to making sure I was able to achieve my degree with the minimum of financial and health stresses, and I’m very grateful!

    I think caley is brilliant for students who don't know many people in Glasgow as through clubs and student accomodation it is easy to meet new people.
