Solving Complex Refractive Issues (VS31006)

This course presents the optometric approach to optimal patient care through the clinical visualization, analysis, application and ultimate design specific to ophthalmic prescription eyewear and contact lenses. A thorough review of intermediate level optics will be presented in the beginning of the course as a means to prepare students for case analyses involving anisometropia, aniseikonia, post-cataract care and post corneal surgical considerations. Upon completion of this course, students will develop a greater understanding for the delivery of optimal optometric patient care, and analyze patients’ eye care and eyewear needs in regards to refraction, frame selection, and ophthalmic lens selection.
