By the course’s end, the student will be able to conduct a comprehensive, primary-care optometric examination, reach a diagnosis, and outline a management plan for the vast majority of patients seen during the third-year clinical program. The course will cover the general areas of ocular disease, refraction, functional vision analysis, and patient communication.
