EYE MOVEMENT SYSTEMS
Credit points: 15
In this subject students will build on concepts presented in Clinical Anatomy and Neurosciences and Neuro-ophthalmology. Students will broaden their understanding of disorders of the afferent and efferent visual pathways. Within this context, cortical and subcortical control, pathways and functions of the different types of eye movement systems will be studied in detail. Students will integrate theoretical concepts and clinical techniques to interpret clinical findings for the diagnosis and management of eye movement disorders. This subject will equip students to progress to the Orthoptic Clinical Practice subjects.
