is a practical skill which I have rarely performed in a busy Specsavers practice.
The practice provides training days to ophthalmologists preparing to sit their refraction exam, and I am responsible for leading the focimetry
and the hand neutralisation element of this.
During the year, preregs may have not kept up to date with certain skills covered by the elements of competence, such as manual focimetry
of spectacles, as these tasks may have been completed by other staff members or automated devices during the prereg year.
Alongside this main programme, popular frame workshops, including ABDO's paediatric fitting and focimetry
workshops, will return for a second consecutive year.
This, along with visual field analysis and focimetry
, as well as assessment of the customer's spectacles, forms our prescreening routine.
Pre-regs should remember the British standards and tolerance when performing focimetry
, as well as the occupational vision requirements and what tests to perform.
Here you are required to perform a practical procedure; eg direct ophthalmoscopy, cover test, focimetry
or keratometry--all the things that you do in daily practice.
