COURSES DISCRUPTION

 

 

OPTO 251: Optics

This is an introductory course in geometrical optics. Introduction to light and optics, wavelength, frequency, speed of light, index of refraction, and optical length will be discussed. Image formation by plane mirrors and their properties, Image formation by spherical convex mirrors, concave mirrors, properties of the image and magnification, Refraction through plane surfaces, image deviation, real and apparent depth, Prisms, ophthalmic prisms, image deviation, minimum deviation, Introduction curvature and spherical surfaces, sag formula, calculation of power, radius of curvature, Refraction through spherical surfaces, convex surfaces, concave surfaces, image formation, magnification, focal length, surface power. Thin lenses, types, power, focal lengths, surface power, thin lenses, lens formula, Thick lenses, thick lens formula,  focal lengths, thick lens power, sphero-cylidrical lenses, focal planes, power….

 

OPTO 292: Introduction to Optometry

This course series is designed to familiarize the student with the history of optometry, characteristics of professions, interprofessional relations, scope and status of optometric service, optometric organizations and ethical considerations of patient care. Fundamental optometric terminology and basic procedures will also be introduced. Brief introduction of the eye and types of refractive error: myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism and their causes and correction. Introduction about the low vision devices, the ophthalmic equipment and their eye examination will also be discussed.

 

OPTO 374: Binocular Vision

Discussion of the benefits of binocular vision to man as well as the many effect and phenomena found in vision secondary to binocularity including: sensory aspects of binocular vision, sensory fusion, fixation disparity analysis, accommodation, AC/A ratio, convergence, zone of clear single binocular vision, criteria for lens and prism prescription and ultimately binocular perception.

 

OPTO 375: Anomalies of Binocular Vision

In this second of a two course series, anomalies and dysfunctions of normal binocular function and skills are discussed. Topics included will be: Action of individual extra-ocular muscles, suppression, amblyopia, and strabismus, measurement of angle of deviation, fusion problems as well as inability to adequately accommodate, converge and visually track.

 

OPTO 466: Optometry Clinic I

In the first clinical course, optometry students will examine patients and provide refractive care. Under the supervision of faculty optometrists, students will learn to draw upon the information and skills acquired in prior classes to solve visual problems. Additionally, patient management skills will be discussed and developed.

 

OPTO 491: Optometric Practice 

This course is designed to inform the student about various matters relating to opening and operating an optometric office or supervising an optometric clinic.

Financial considerations, principles of negotiation, record keeping, patient management, patient communications and managing an office staff, patient education, professional standards, and proposals for services and equipment will also be discussed.

 

OPTO 493: Orthoptics

This course is designed to teach the optometry student the methods treatment of binocular problems emanating from visual and oculo-motor inefficiency. Emphasis will be placed on the treatment of: strabismus, amblyopia, suppression as well as convergence, divergence and vergence range problems. The treatment of other visual and oculo-motor problems such as deficit of pursuit, saccades and eye-hand coordination will also be discussed

 

OPTO 469: Optometry Clinic II

This is the second and final clinical course. Under the supervision of faculty optometrist, students will examine more patients in order to acquire more competence.

 

OPTO 475: Visual Science Project

This course is designed to introduce the students to research projects. Under supervision, a project is proposed, conducted, written up and presented. It may be of any number of formats; however background research, methods, data collection, analysis, presentation and evaluation will be discussed.
