264 College of Optometry take the form of literature reviews with a critical interpretation of the literature, or a specialized fitting (with documentation) of one or a series of difficult/unusual cases, or other appropriate activities mutually agreeable to the student and faculty adviser. Weekly conferences are required. The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance. (36-0-3) CVR 8593—Independent Study III Contact Lenses Individual study in a specific topic is proposed by the student and approved by the student’s faculty adviser. Projects may take the form of literature reviews with a critical interpretation of the literature, or a specialized fitting (with documentation) of one or a series of difficult/unusual cases, or other appropriate activities mutually agreeable to the student and faculty adviser.

(36-0-3) CVR 8620—Assessment of Functional Vision This course will help students understand the difference between visual function, which is more about the threshold performance, and functional vision, which is more about the sustainable performance. It will also help them understand the real-life testing environment, where multiple parameters may vary simultaneously and in unpredictable combinations, as well as the non-visual factors that may influence the outcome. (36-0-3) CVR 8691—Independent Study I in Low Vision Offering competency-based instruction in the utilization of paradigms for research applications, this course is tailored to individual research interests (e.g., techniques on evaluating reading performance and eye movement monitoring for the student interested in conducting research on reading in low vision patients). The purpose of this course is to provide a means for M.S. students to intensively review potential thesis topics and for non-M.S. students to engage in individual research of personal interest with close supervision and guidance. (36-0-3) CVR 8692—Independent Study II in Low Vision Offering competency-based instruction in the utilization of paradigms for research applications, this course is tailored to individual research interests (e.g., techniques on evaluating reading performance and eye movement monitoring for the student interested in conducting research on reading in low vision patients).
