This subject provides you with the fundamental physiological principals of ocular movement and binocular single vision. You will develop an understanding of the general characteristics of binocular single vision and of the sensory consequences of the abnormal visual experience. The characteristics of strabismus and the relationship between accommodation and strabismus will also be introduced. You will gain experience in the use of orthoptic instruments in the assessment of the normal ranges of ocular motility and binocular vision as a preliminary to the assessment, diagnosis and management of patients with orthoptic problems. This subject includes an off-site clinical placement equivalent to two days. Attendance at professional placements will contribute to meeting minimum requirements for workplace experience and professional accreditation.
