Ophthalmic dispensing begins in the consulting room. This is particularly important because understanding a patient’s visual needs begins during case history. By taking a detailed case history, an optometrist can tailor their care to provide the best possible outcomes. For instance, the optical needs of a 45-year-old female who works in a factory will be different from the same lady when she is cooking at home. Pertinent questions to ponder prior to dispensing a visual aid for this patient would include.

Does she need digressive lenses? What is her habitual working distance? What sought of measurements should be considered before dispensing an optical aid for this patient? What frame material should she choose? Does she require single-vision lenses or multifocal?

How can compensated heights, pantoscopic tilt and IPD measurements influence the type of frame to recommend to the patient? If the Optom works with a non-eye care practitioner, how may this individual be trained to assist in optical dispensing?

There are six modules in this course. Each module has several topics in them. Each topic has articles and/or video lessons.

You are required to read through each article and watch every video.
