- Grading of the course requires grading of the following courses:
- Foundations of Physiological Optics (F7PBOZFO)
- Garant předmětu:

- Department of Natural Sciences
Functional principles of different diagnostic and therapeutic ophthalmic devices will be discussed. Students will be able to test most of machines during practical lessons at clinical department. Overview, physical principles, technical construction and parameters of following devices and methods will be studied: slit lamp, ophthalmoscope (direct and indirect, confocal scanning), retinoscope, refractometer, tonometer, campimeter, Heidelberg retinal tomograph, optical coherence tomography, retinal nerve fibre layer analysis (GDx), specular (endothelial) microscope, devices for subjective investigation of astigmatism, devices for investigation of ocular movements, corneal topohraphs, testing of refractive balance, eikonometer, POLA-test, ortopic machines, Hertel exophthalmometer, devices for color vision testing.
The examination consists of a written test and an oral examination. Answers to the questions are scored according to difficulty. The overall mark of the examination corresponds to the applicable grading scale. If the result of any part is graded F, the result of the examination is automatically F.
