Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2010-11

La asignatura de Optometría I se imparte en el tercer semestre del segundo curso y pertenece a la materia Optometría y Contactología. En esta asignatura el estudiante profundizará en el conocimiento de las disfunciones refractivas del ojo, sus causas, síntomas y signos, así como en los diferentes métodos de diagnóstico objetivos y subjetivos para su detección y tratamiento optométrico.

Se pretende que al finalizar la asignatura el alumno sea capaz de realizar correctamente un examen refractivo teniendo en cuenta las particularidades de las diferentes ametropías.

 

 

Estudiar y conocer las disfunciones refractivas del ojo, sus causas, síntomas y signos, así como los diferentes métodos de diagnóstico objetivo y subjetivo para su detección y tratamiento optométrico. En definitiva, conocer todos los aspectos relacionados con un examen optométrico utilizando para ello los tests adecuados en las pruebas clínicas objetivas y subjetivas del examen refractivo.

Se pretende que al finalizar la asignatura el alumno sea capaz de realizar correctamente un examen refractivo teniendo en cuenta las particularidades de cada grupo poblacional y de las distintas ametropías.
