OPS 201 Ophthalmic Science Synthesis

3 credits (PREREQUISITE: ADMISSION TO THE OPHTHALMIC SCIENCE PROGRAM)

In this course, students will review all the concepts presented in the program: practical application of ophthalmic fabrication and dispensing, contact lens design, fitting and dispensing, record keeping and reviewing CT State Statutes governing opticians. Additionally, students will engage in identifying a community need in which they can serve an under-served population while perfecting their ophthalmic skills and capabilities. Through written work and class discussions, students will reflect on both the purposes and the experience of this service learning work. (Sp)
