Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

La asignatura de Optometría II se imparte en el segundo semestre del segundo curso y pertenece a la materia Optometría y Contactología. La asignatura de Optometría II posee un estrecho vínculo con el resto de asignaturas de la materia. Para poder cursar adecuadamente esta asignatura son necesarios los conocimientos y habilidades que los alumnos han debido adquirir en las asignaturas previas de Fundamentos de Optometría y Optometría I, y a su vez, los conocimientos y pruebas optometricas desarrolladas en Optometría II serán básicos para poder diagnosticar las diferentes disfunciones y tratamientos que serán estudiados en Optometría III, Optometría IV y Optometría y Contactología Clínica. Por lo que esta asignatura es un pilar básico en la formación de este grado para adquirir las habilidades profesionales que deben desarrollar.
