Learning outcomes - Consolidate the integration of binocularity in the visual examination routine.
- Know and apply the different Optometric data analysis systems in the diagnosis of accommodative dysfunctions and non-strabismic binocular vision.
Syllabus Knowledge and skills must be demonstrated in:
(1) Optometric examination: anamnesis, refraction, binocular vision and accommodative function;
(2) Eye movements,
(3) Types of non-squint binocular and accommodative dysfunctions
(4) Dysfunction in ocular motor function,
(5) Optometric analysis methods: visual graphic analysis, OEP analytical method, Morgan normative analysis and integrative analysis
(6) Case analysis and diagnostic classification,
(7) Eye movement anomalies.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria • The classification during the teaching and learning period (EA) is given by the expression:
EA = 2/3 T + 1/3 PL, where PL = 2/3 C + 1/3 TG
where T is the classification obtained in a theoretical test, PL the classification obtained in the laboratory practices component, C is the classification obtained in the individual daily notebook, and TG is the classification obtained in the group work. The student is required to orally present one of their complete cases. The student is exempt from the exam if PL >= 7 points out of 20 and EA >= 9,5 points out of 20.
The minimum EA rating for granting frequency is 7 points out of 20.
• The student passes by exam if the final classification (CF), given by the expression:
CF = 2/3 E + 1/3 AO,
is >= 9.5 points out of 20, where E corresponds to the classification of the Exam test and AO to the classification of the individual oral presentation of a practical case of the individual portfolio.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
