Learning outcomes Objectives:
- Consolidate the binocular vision integration in the visual examination routine.
- Know and apply different systems for optometric data analysis.

Skills to be acquired by the student:
- Integrate the binocularity in the visual examination.
- Identify signs and symptoms of the several accommodative and nonstrabismic binocular vision disfunction.
- Analyze optometric data and diagnose accommodative and nonstrabismic binocular vision problems.
- Develop analysis skills, reasoning and clinical judgment for optometric examination results.
- Know how to direct the optometric examination, based on anamnesis and tests results.
Syllabus 1. Optometric examination: anamnesis, refraction, binocular vision and accommodative function.
2. Types of accommodative and nonstrabismic binocular vision dysfunctions.
3. Methods of analysis in optometry: graphical analysis, analytical analysis development by Optometric Extension Program, Normative analysis (Morgan´s system);
4.Integrative analysis.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods The subject comprises theoretical-practical and practical classes is giving particular emphasis to practical activities, conducted by the student from performing optometric analysis and classification de visual problems. The sessions are organized by combining two complementary techniques of teaching: (i) presentation and discussion classes (they are supported by slides and also by case studies used to motivate the discussion, as well as other support material available through the platform of content); (ii) Practical classes take in properly place equipped with optometry instruments.
Metodologias de Ensino e Critérios de Avaliação A classificação durante o período de ensino e aprendizagem (CEA) é determinada pela seguinte expressão:

CEA = 1/2 T + 1/2 P

onde T é a classificação obtida num teste teórico e P a classificação obtida na componente de práticas laboratoriais. A componente prática é determinada de acordo com a seguinte expressão: P = 50%TRG + 50% PORT, onde TRG corresponde à classificação obtida na realização de um trabalho de grupo escrito e PORT à classificação obtida num portefólio.

O aluno fica dispensado de exame se P >= 7 valores e CEA >= 9,5 valores.

Outros critérios:
Realização obrigatória de um teste teórico (T);
Realização obrigatória de um trabalho de grupo escrito (P);

O aluno aprova por exame caso a classificação final (CF), dada pela expressão:

CF = 1/2AOI + 1/2E,

seja igual ou superior a 9,5 valores, sendo que E corresponde à classificação do teste de Exame e AOI à classificação da Apresentação Oral Individual de pelo menos um caso prático. A AOI será avaliado na sessão de perguntas e respostas subsequente à apresentação e nas vertentes de conteúdo, pensamento crítico, comunicação e colaboração.

Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
