Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will build on concepts presented in Binocular Vision, Concomitant Strabismus and Neuro-ophthalmology and Eye Movement Systems. Students will develop an understanding of the aetiology, investigation, diagnosis, and management of incomitant strabismus and associated sensory consequences. Using an enquiry based learning program; students will integrate theoretical concepts with practical instrumentation and clinical techniques to apply optical, orthoptic, medical and surgical management for various types of strabismus in an evidence based medical context with multidisciplinary provisions (incorporating ophthalmology, neurology, radiology and endocrinology). This subject will equip students to progress to the Orthoptic Clinical Practice subjects.
