These lesson plans and study guides for a secondary/postsecondary level course in optometry comprise one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting. The purpose stated for the 128-hour course is to train students in basic ocular anatomy and physiology, basic optics, use and maintenance of optometric testing equipment, visual therapy, medical ethics, medical technology and techniques, asepsis, and ocular first aid and emergency treatment. Introductory instructor materials include a course chart; a plan of instruction detailing units of instruction, criterion objectives, lesson duration, and support materials needed; and a specialty training standard for student performance evaluations. A lesson plan and a study guide are provided for each of two blocks of instruction: Introduction and Basic Optics (geometric optics, ophthalmic optics, professional and patient relationship) and The Visual System (anatomy and physiology of the visual system, the eye as an optical instrument, ocular emergencies and first aid). Lesson plans outline course content. The workbook includes objectives, informative materials, exercises, and answer keys. Several commercial texts, films, slide sets, and videotapes are recommended for use but are not provided. (YLB)
