This unit introduces the student to diseases of the eye, including their underlying pathophysiology and provides an evidence base for appropriate management strategies for the more common ocular disorders.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Describe the natural history of common and selected eye diseases;
2. Accurately interpret the results of clinical tests and examinations to correlate the basis of the disease with clinical findings;
3. Develop an appropriate differential diagnosis for common and selected diseases, injuries and anomalies of the eye and visual system;
4. Produce evidence-based management strategies for common and selected diseases, injuries and anomalies of the eye and visual system; and
5. Recognise when referral to another health care professional within an appropriate time frame is indicated.
