Overview

This course utilises the principles of behavioural optometry introduced in OPTM7103 Behavioural Optometry 1, with an emphasis on treatment options, vision training, and practice management issues. Consideration is also given to the assessment and management of special needs patients including those with genetic conditions, developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injury. Assignments require the clinical application of behavioural concepts to simple and complex cases, so all participants must have access to a variety of optometric patients, including children. Overseas students must arrange this with the course controller prior to enrolment. Together with OPTM7103 Behavioural Optometry 1, this course forms the foundation program for candidates for a Fellowship of the Australian College of Behavioural Optometrists.
