Evaluations by a Certified Orthoptist
Joyce Lipsky-Santana, C.O., C.O.T.
Orthoptic evaluations look at how the eye muscles move and how the eyes work together. As a Certified Orthoptist, Joyce has over 20 years of experience as a certified orthoptist and assists Spinak Medical Eye Center staff in giving our patients the best care possible.
Who Can See an Orthoptist?
An orthoptist works with individuals of all ages. At Spinak Medical Eye Center, many of our orthoptic patients are children. Joyce understands that children can be a bit fearful, especially at a doctor’s office and is experienced at making them more comfortable and at ease.
