Course description
  OPTOMETRY I

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2019-20

La asignatura Optometría I se imparte en el tercer semestre,  segundo curso. Pertenece a la materia Optometría y Contactología. Optometría I requiere los conocimientos básicos adquiridos en Fundamentos de Optometría. Por otra parte Optometría I servirá de base teórica y prácticas a asignaturas de Optometría y Contactología impartidas en los siguientes semestres.

En esta asignatura el alumno utilizará instrumentos para evaluar estructuras oculares, profundizará en el estudio de las disfunciones refractivas del ojo. Realizará un examen refractivo para visión de lejos . Conocerá el mecanismo acomodativo, realizará las pruebas objetivas para su medición, y analizará las acomodaciones relativas a una distancia en ojo amétrope y emetropizado. Conocerá cómo calcular la adición óptima para una distancia de trabajo en la presbicia. Estos temas se complementan con el análisis, desarrollo y discusión de casos prácticos y representaciones gráficas demostrativas.
