  FUNDAMENTALS OF OPTOMETRY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2019-20

La asignatura de Fundamentos de Optometría se imparte en el segundo semestre del primer curso y pertenece a la materia Optometría y Contactología. Con esta asignatura el alumno entra por primera vez en contacto con la Optometría, que es un pilar básico en la formación de este grado para adquirir las habilidades profesionales que debe desarrollar. En Fundamentos de Optometría se establece el concepto de Optometría y su evolución histórica, conceptos como la emetropia y la ametropía, los fundamentos de la refracción tanto mediante pruebas objetivas como subjetivas, todo ello tanto a nivel teórico como práctico. Estos conocimientos serán básicos para establecer las bases teóricas y prácticas que se desarrollaran en otras asignaturas como: Optometría I, Optometría II, Optometría III, Optometría IV, Contactología I, Contactología II y Optometría y Contactología Clínica.
