- Department of Natural Sciences
Subject is focused on theory and practical examination of refractive errors and various possibilities of correction of refractive errors. Optical and surgical correction of refractive errors. Objective methods of refraction. Subjective methods of refraction. Correction of myopia. Correction of hypermetropia. Correction of astigmatism. Correction of presbyopia. Determination of binocular balance. Basic techniques of surgical correction of refractive errors. Refractive surgery. Methods of laser keratorefractive surgery. Implantation of intraocular lenses.
