About Alison Lawson
In 1953, after obtaining a Diploma of Australian Orthoptics (D.A.O.), Mrs. Lawson practised orthoptics at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Camperdown, where, two years later she became head of the orthoptic clinic. In 1954, she was invited to be a member of the orthoptic clinic at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, and established a private clinic at Wollstonecraft, and later, at the Royal North Shore Medical Centre at St. Leonards.
To gain overseas experience, Mrs. Lawson went to England in 1959, and was invited to join the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children, London, and later, alternated between that orthoptic clinic, and the Royal County Hospital in Surrey, also St Lukes Hospital, Guildford. For some time Mrs. Lawson was also in private practice with several leading ophthalmologists in England. In 1964, Mrs. Lawson returned to Australia, taking further courses, including that of Tutor Orthoptist, which qualified her to teach and train orthoptists. Mrs. Lawson accepted the position of head orthoptist with a group of seven eye surgeons in Parramatta, which, combined with a private practice in Gosford, and during this time, she specialised with children who had learning problems and made extensive research into the visual cortex.
