Orthoptist Jobs

Orthoptists are allied healthcare practitioners who specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the eye and visual system. Orthoptic treatment of certain conditions can relieve visual symptoms and enhance visual performance, but surgical intervention is not part of an orthoptist’s job description.

The median salary for an orthoptist is $61,379 according to Payscale, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects faster than average job growth for diagnostic/treatment practitioners in general at 10%–14% through 2026.
