BINOCULAR VISION AND REFRACTION
Credit points: 15
In this subject students develop an understanding of the anatomical and physiological concepts of ocular motility and binocular single vision. Students will also be introduced to strabismus and the sensory consequences of abnormal visual experience. This subject will expand on principles studied in ORT2ORS, providing students with an applied understanding of the principles of refraction, the refractive state of the eye and the near vision complex. Using enquiry-based learning students will learn to apply theoretical concepts to various patient cases. This subject will equip students to progress to the third-year subjects, ORT4CON and ORT5INC.
