Job Summary: The Orthoptist will collaborate with our current experienced Orthoptist in supporting the pediatric and neuro-ophthalmology services at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. The Orthoptist will run an independent clinic one day each week, and work the remaining four days per week at various Bay Area locations, most directly with our neuro- ophthalmologist, who cares for adults and children with vision loss and eye movement disorders resulting from neurological conditions.
