Geneviève Prigent est une des grandes figures de l’orthoptie. Son travail, en collaboration avec le docteur Jean Lavat, ophtalmologiste, a beaucoup apporté à la valorisation de l’orthoptie dans la prise en charge des strabismes. On leur doit, en particulier, la mise en place du “travail dans l’espace”. Préoccupée par l’enfant strabique, elle s’est intéressée à sa latéralisation, son activité et son état émotionnel.

Geneviève Prigent, pioneering and passionate orthoptist

Geneviève Prigent is a great figure in orthoptics. Her work, carried out in collaboration with Dr Jean Lavat, ophthalmologist, has greatly increased the value of orthoptics in the treatment of strabismus. In particular, we owe to them the setting up of “work in space”. With a special interest in the strabismic child, she is concerned with its lateralisation, activity and emotional state.
