Learning outcomes - Know the physical principles underlying the examinations of ocular fundus examination, tonometry and perimetry and their interpretation. - To know the techniques of evaluation and the characteristics of pathologies of the ocular movements and pupillary reflexes. - Perform the appropriate ocular exams for the pre and postoperative evaluation of a refractive surgery patient. - Use the appropriate diagnostic eye medications to aid in refraction and ocular examination. - Perform and interpret the necessary examinations for structural and functional evaluation of the adnexa, ocular structures and visual pathways. - Integrate the communication of the possibility of ocular pathology to other health professionals, following the optometric examination, in order to participate in the prevention of public health risk.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Teaching methodology integrating: theoretical and practical classes to acquire knowledge about the techniques to be applied, exercise resolution to exemplify the calculation of vision parameters related to the techniques and analysis of clinical cases; practical laboratory classes for practicing clinical procedures, including the application of diagnostic ocular drugs; complement to the theoretical and practical training with the use of self-study and observation of real patients with ocular pathology. Evaluation using theoretical tests, practical tests of clinical procedures and referral reports to other health professionals, based on clinical case analysis.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
