Description

This subject introduces specialised areas of orthoptic practice and modes of patient management in vision rehabilitation. There is a focus on orthoptic practice in an international and national context with study of the epidemiology of eye disease in different communities, such as those in developing countries and Indigenous Australian populations with culturally appropriate case management. The process of screening for vision disorders in children and adults, including standards for visual impaired paralympic athletes and cases are used to illustrate effective and interdisciplinary patient management. Long-term case management for optimal therapeutic outcomes is studied with particular attention to the practice of visual rehabilitation in cases of low vision and in brain injury, driver rehabilitation and improving visual performance including visual and electronic aids.
