Orthoptics in Norway

The Orthoptists in Norway are scarce. Orthoptists examine, diagnose and treat defects of binocular vision. These defects occur as a result of abnormal development in childhood, or an acquired incident in adulthood. However, Norwegian patients are at risk of poorer care due to the fact that no Orthoptic education exists in Norway. The University of Oslo is willing to start providing a Bachelor degree in Orthoptics, leading on to a Masters degree, at the faculty of medicine, if funding can be found. Unfortunately the Norwegian government lack insight into the work of Orthoptists. We need your support to bring attention to this cause. 

Please give your support by signing this petition for a Norwegian, medically based education, in Orthoptics.
