Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

La asignatura Contactología II pertenece a la materia obligatoria Optometría y Contactología. Se imparte durante el sexto semestre (segundo semestre del tercer curso) a continuación de la Contactología I, a la que complementa en aspectos más avanzados del proceso de adaptación de las lentes de contacto y en el manejo de técnicas instrumentales más específicas. Posteriormente, se completa con la Optometría y Contactología Clínica, en la que se enseñan los procedimientos contactológicos de atención clínica y de diagnóstico diferencial.



Course content (verified by ANECA in official undergraduate and Master’s degrees)

Specific competences (CE):>>Module 2: optics competences

  • CES27 : Understand lens selection, manufacture and design processes.
  • CES29 : Understand and manage the techniques for the analysis, measurement, correction and control of the effects of compensating optical systems on the visual system, in order to optimise their design and adaptation.
  • CES30 : Capacity to calculate the geometric parameters of specific visual compensation systems: low vision, intraocular lenses, contact lenses and ophthalmic lenses.
  • CES37 : Understand the Spanish health care system and the basic aspects related to health service management, basically those associated with health care and rehabilitation.
  • CES39 : Acquire the ability to carry out the profession respecting the autonomy of the patients, their beliefs and culture, as well as their determining genetic, demographic and socioeconomic factors, applying the principles of social justice and understanding the ethical implications in the context of a world in change.


Specific competences (CE):>>Module 3: vision system pathology competences

  • CES40 : Understand the properties and functions of the different elements making up the visual system.
  • CES51 : Understand the epidemiological models of the main visual pathologies.
  • CES52 : Understand and apply health education techniques to the main generic ocular health problems. Understand the principles of sickness and health.


Specific competences (CE):>>Module 4: optometry competences

  • CES58 : Capacity to measure, interpret and treat refractive defects.
