Course description
  OPTOMETRY : SPECIFIC POPULATION GROUPS

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2010-11

La asignatura "Optometría: poblaciones especiales" pertenece a la materia Optometría y Contactología, situada en el sexto semestre (segundo semestre de tercer curso). Durante los tres próximos cursos académicos se impartirá dentro del Curso de Adaptación al Grado de Óptica y Optometría.

La situación temporal de la asignatura implica que el alumno posea conocimientos específicos sobre numerosos aspectos optométricos, como las disfunciones refractivas, acomodativas y binoculares, así como las técnicas específicas de examen. Igualmente es recomendable que se hayan adquirido conocimientos previos sobre patología ocular.

En "Optometría: poblaciones especiales" se analiza fundamentalmente la gestión clínica de poblaciones con características concretas que merecen un enfoque particular de la actuación profesional del Óptico-Optometrista, como pueden ser la población pediátrica, los problemas de aprendizaje, las personas con discapacidad, la población mayor, la baja visión y determinadas patologías oculares.
