As a part of this important orthoptic special diagnostics, the visual acuity and the stereoscopic vision will be checked and the child’s glasses adjusted, if necessary.

Adults with diplopia caused by ophthalmoparesis can also profit from the diagnostics and therapeutic treatment in vision therapy. The disorders can be treated successfully through special training or special glasses custom-tailored for each individual patient.
