Linda Keithan, CO

Linda has been working as a staff orthoptist at Children’s Eye Care since 2012.

“Orthoptics” is an ancillary field within ophthalmology pertaining to the evaluation of disorders of the visual system, with an emphasis on binocular (two-eyed) vision. They are board-certified by the American Orthoptic Council after the successful completion of a two-year clinical orthoptic program and a prior baccalaureate degree.

The successful evaluation of children requires patience in a playful, gentle atmosphere. Orthoptists are specialists in evaluating vision of children of all ages and abilities, as well as adults with eye misalignment and double vision and are uniquely skilled in specialized diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.

In addition to staffing our offices, the orthoptists at Children’s Eye Care participate in the clinical education of ophthalmology residents-in-training at Children’s Hospital of MI, as well as contribute to clinical research in the study of ocular motility.
