Learning Objectives

  • Day 1.1 1. Understand a model of vision that includes its interaction with the other senses 2. Explore alternative decision making for prescribing based on case examples 3.

  • Day 1.3 1. Understand the role of the “where” system in vision attention and processing 2. Explore the cues to depth, monocular vs binocular 3. Begin to view convergence and divergence as an ocular outcome of the centering “where” process and its relationship to visuo-vestibular interaction symptoms.

  • Day 2.1 1Gain an overview of model of vision care that considers spatial representations, conscious vs unconscious control, stress and motivation 2. Understand that when analysing optometric data versus the primary symptoms or concerns of the patient, develop an understanding that the severity of either may not predict the each other 3.

  • Day 2.2 1. Learn how to use a space board clinically 2. Understand the effect of yoked prism on space boards and reinforcement of the non-linear changes introduced by lenses 3. Discover practical applications of the space board using real patients cases.
  • Day 2.3 1. Centripetal vs Centrifugal – in vs out 2. Compression vs Expansion of space – bigger vs smaller 3. Understand how this fits into a representation of 3D space and how this produces paradoxes in diagnosis when trying represent vision problems using traditional linear methods.
  • Day 2.4 1. Understand what embedded vs unembedded visual behaviour is. 2. Understand how this relates to how the patient may use vision 3. Understand how this may influence what you measure and how the patient reacts to various forms of treatment.

  • Day 3.1 1. Understand the link between visual development, general development and the impact of lens prescribing. 2. Know that patient responses to different lenses help determine what lenses may be beneficial to the patient 3. Gain insight from specific examples of lens prescribing for different refractive conditions
  • Day 3.2 1. Understand how the patient responds verbally during the assessment, provides an insight into how they approach challenges 2.

  • Day 3.5 1. Explore general principles of lighting conditions, speed of assessment, use of open questions. 2. Learn how to pay attention to the manner of how the VA chart is read, and changes in working distance during near testing. 3. What are the cover test observations and observational data for ocular motility testing.
  • Day 3.6 1. Explore observations and data for NPC testing, and additional techniques 2.

Experience a practical application of stress point retinoscopy to prescribing, including demonstration and practice on other course registrants.
  • Day 4.1 1. Gain an understanding on the history and modern perspective on the 21 point examination 2. Understand how different phoropters will influence the measurements taken 3. Understand the difference between dynamic vs static vs cycloplegic retinoscopy
  • Day 4.2 1. Gain an insight into using the subjective refraction to get a range of lenses that helps identify which lens is most like to satisfy the patient’s needs 2. Exposure to an alternative order to binocular balance and how to refine the final “best VA” finding. 3. Learn how to select a reference lens for benchmarking other functional tests
  • Day 4.3 1. Learn the value of different phoria measurements to help make prescribing decisions 2. Understand what a phoria represents regarding spatial shifts, and the effect of instructional set, lighting, and target choice 3. Learn an open instructional set for phoria and ductions
  • Day 4.4 1. Understand the rationale behind measuring BO before BI and the use of the ramp method 2. Understand a model where ductions represent a person’s stress handling capability 3. Understand how to analyse findings in terms of stress and level of embeddedness
  • Day 4.5 1. What targets and directions to use and how do they influence your findings? 2. Alternative techniques when patients are not sensitive to changes 3. Understand paradoxes of phorias changing in unpredictable ways
  • Day 4.6 1. Recommended sequence for the analytical exam and how to measure PRA/NRA 2. Qualitative Findings 3. Vertical Testing
