Orthoptists assess, diagnose and treat patients of any age where there is a problem with eye movements, such as lazy eye, squints, double vision and poor visual development.  We run clinics at the Royal Bolton Hospital and children’s clinics in community locations in Bolton. We aim to vision screen all children in Bolton during their first year at school, in their school. We try to see all new patients as soon as possible and will take enquiries and offer advice over the phone. We pride ourselves in our approachability, the quality of care and after care that we provide to all of our patients.
