Course content (verified by ANECA in official undergraduate and Master’s degrees)
Specific competences (CE):>>Module 2: optics competences
Understand and calculate the most important geometric, optical and physical parameters that characterise all kinds of ophthalmic lenses used in optometric prescriptions and know how to relate them with the properties involved in the adaptation process.
Understand the physical and chemical properties of the materials used in optics and optometry.
Understand lens selection, manufacture and design processes.
Be able to master the techniques of centring, adaptation, mounting and adaptation of all kinds of lenses, of optical prescriptions, visual assistance and protective glasses.
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.
Capacity to calculate the geometric parameters of specific visual compensation systems: low vision, intraocular lenses, contact lenses and ophthalmic lenses.
Understand the aberrations of optical systems.
Specific competences (CE):>>Module 4: optometry competences
Capacity to measure, interpret and treat refractive defects.
Identify and analyse the environmental and work risks that can cause visual problems.
