Learning outcomes Application of optometric techniques in clinical situations in the real context where students must demonstrate knowledge and apply and develop communication skills and practices. To develop critical thinking and ability in the decision process of optometric situations that deepen the practical skills acquired in Clinical Practice I and II, namely at the level of ocular pathology, contactology, and in the observation and interpretation of complementary diagnostic exams
Syllabus Knowledge and practical/clinical skills should be demonstrated, in particular: (1) Ability to transmit and explain to patients their physiological or pathological visual condition; (2) Knowing how to evaluate binocular status; (3) Knowing how to evaluate adult patients with heterophoria; (4) Know how to evaluate a patient's colour vision and compare with the standards required by various professional groups; (5) Know how to handle specific instrumentation in the ocular examination; (6) Knowing how to evaluate the anterior segment and its attachments, the tear film, and pupillary reflexes; (7) Know how to handle the slit lamp; (8) Knowing to examine the fundus of the eye using direct techniques; (9) Know how to use instrumentation to measure corneal curvature; (10) Know how to evaluate and analyze the visual fields (11) Know how to use the slit lamp in the detection of signs of inflammation in the anterior chamber; (12) Know how to evaluate the visual fields of patients with decreased.
