A lecture delivered by Sally-Anne Herring (Orthoptist; Hawkes Bay DHB) giving updated international best practice recommendations for hospital Orthoptists/ophthalmic professionals seeing these patients. This will include TBI that result in acquired visual deficits that benefit from orthoptic interventions. We will review common visual disturbances after stroke, and acquired neurological defects, therapies and diagnostic tests to establish the nature of the visual complaints.

Here in New Zealand there is not easy access to the orthoptist due lack of professional numbers over the country and scarce DHB resources which leads to a more diverse professional involvement with these clients in the community and so increased knowledge of these patients is vital
