We would like to thank the HSE for providing the initial funding for technical guidance in creating this website, and also a big thanks to Natasha McDonald of Acorn Solutions for her creativity and patience.
Most Irish orthoptists are members of the professional body The British and Irish Orthoptic Society. We wish to gratefully acknowledge the guidance they have provided to us over many years and hopefully for many years to come.
We would like to thank the American Academy of Paediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus for use of some illustrations from their extensive and informative website, www.aapos.org.
Finally and most importantly, a big thanks to the patients of the orthoptic departments in Temple St. Children's Hospital and The Royal Victoria Eye and Ear Hospital, Dublin, for agreeing to be photographed, so that other people can better understand their own conditions.
