Subject outline

In this subject, you will build on concepts presented in Binocular Vision, Concomitant Strabismus and Neuro-ophthalmology and Eye Movement Systems. You will develop an understanding of the aetiology, investigation, diagnosis, and management of incomitant strabismus and associated sensory consequences. You 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 you to progress to the Orthoptic Clinical Practice subjects.
