Learning outcomes Application of optometric techniques of clinical situations in the real context, namely, at the Clinical and Experimental Center in Sight Science and UBIMedical, where students must demonstrate knowledge and apply and develop communication skills and practical skills. To develop critical thinking and skills in the decision-making process of optometric situations of the different conditions in non-strabismic visual dysfunctions.
Syllabus Knowledge and practical / clinical skills should be demonstrated in specific situations, such as: (1) know how to make decisions about the prescription of refraction and optometric management appropriate based on the refractive and binocular state (2) knowing how to evaluate binocular status using objective and subjective tests, (3) knowing how to evaluate adult patients with heterophoria, (4) how to handle specific instrumentation in the ocular examination and to understand the implications of the results in terms of subsequent examination techniques, (5) know how to evaluate and interpret pupillary reflexes.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Given that the central objective of UC is the application of optometric techniques in clinical situations in the real context, practical skills in PL and practical skills in OT are assessed, with the variable "execution time" being the central element in the acquisition of these Skills. The total skills to be acquired are divided into 7 groups of tests.

Assessment procedures include (1) formative and summative assessments through multiple choice or short answer exams; (2) formal assessment of competencies in clinical matters, either by a series of continuous assessment tests or by a final practical test, and (3) final assessment of the accredited registry.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
