Optometry Sixth Form Conference
The University of Bradford would like to invite you to an Optometry Sixth Form Conference where you will get the opportunity to participate in an eye examination, and chat with staff and current students about life on the course at the University.
Activities will include
- Direct ophthalmoscopy and fundus photography: Photographing the back of the eyes and using an ophthalmoscope to try to see the back of the eye of your partner.
- Coloured contact lenses and slit lamp: Demonstration of inserting a coloured contact lens, and viewing this lens on the eye using a video slit lamp.
- Volk on model eyes: Try and find the words printed inside the model eyes using the volk lenses and slit lamps.
Students need to be studying two A-level science subjects to attend this session and expect to achieve the entry requirements for Optometry.
