Orthoptist services

The orthoptic service is a state service responsible for visual screening of children from 10 months to 4 years old (up to cycle 1.2 of the Luxembourgish school) and the care of people suffering from visual disturbances.

The acts performed by the orthoptic service are free and optional.

Orthoptic consultations are not a substitute for consultations with an ophthalmologist. In case of positive screening for a vision disorder, the orthoptist will advise you to consult an ophthalmologist.

Vision problems for elderly people

In case of narrowing of the field of vision, the orthoptic service can perform a low vision assessment on the basis of a prescription made by an ophthalmologist. A visual aid may be recommended to the dependency insurance on the basis of a medical report.
