Athèna Gagnebin

Orthoptist

She followed her three-year training program (2017-2020) at the Jules-Gonin Ophtalmic Hostpital in Lausanne. She has been working with Dr. Ken Steinegger since February 2021. Her role is to complete orthoptic examinations and further tests.

Very little is known about Orthoptics. A full ophthalmic examination includes an orthoptic assessment, particularly for children. She studies ocular movement as well as how the eyes move together. This examination is essential for patients suffering from strabismus, amblyopia, lack of convergence, etc.
