2 Admission criteria The admission criteria for acceptance in the BSc in Optometry Degree Completion Program follow: Completed application form Transcript of a two-year diploma in optometry Fluency in spoken and written English all classes and program material will be delivered in English No past history of professional misconduct ASCO India will screen every applicant s transcript. The analysis and supporting documents will be shared with the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University, which has the final authority for transcript acceptance. BASIC SCIENCES This module covers foundational topics, such as general physiology, pathology and pathophysiology; principles and applications of pharmacology; human anatomy and neuroscience; immunology; and ocular anatomy and physiology. PRACTICE OF OPTOMETRIC MEDICINE This module includes courses related to clinical techniques and their application to the screening and diagnosis of ophthalmic conditions, such as an extended advanced clinical procedures lecture and the clinical procedures laboratory. Program Description OPTOMETRIC APPLICATIONS AND OPHTHALMIC DISEASE This module emphasizes ophthalmic applications and includes ocular biology, anterior and posterior segment disease; clinical medicine and disease manifestations; glaucoma; optic nerve disorders, trauma and emergency care; cataracts and geriatric care; advanced contact lens applications; and public health issues in eye care. OPHTHALMIC APPLICATIONS OF THE MEDICAL LITERATURE This module includes the evidence-based practice course in which students will acquire the skill set in order to apply information gleaned from the medical literature to patient care. FOUNDATIONS OF THE VISUAL SCIENCES This module includes courses that relate to the visual sciences and their applications in optometric care, such as normal and abnormal binocular vision, vision rehabilitation, and applications and complications of contact lenses. GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES The Pennsylvania Department of Education in the USA requires 40 general education credits - the equivalent of 600 hours in a Bachelor of Science Degree Program. To meet this requirement, faculty from Chitkara University will deliver the general education courses concurrently with the optometry courses. Details will be provided by Sankara Eye Care Institutions and Chitkara University.

3 lectures Faculty integrate basic and visual sciences in a compelling, case-based format with clinical applications. Basic science courses set the stage for primary eye care. Students learn about the key areas of primary eye care: anterior and posterior segment conditions, oculo-systemic disease, neuro-ophthalmic disease, contact lenses, pediatrics, vision training and perception, low vision, and more. The courses are taught by world-renowned clinicians, researchers and educators who are leaders in their fields. Many of Salus University s instructors wrote the textbooks commonly used at schools of optometry. Clinical diagnostic procedures are presented during one-week sessions in Sankara Eye Care Institutions four facilities. Training encompasses all aspects of diagnostic skills: labs Problem-focused examination theory Subjective, objective assessment plan (SOAP) format Infection control External examination Slit lamp biomicroscopy Anterior segment ocular health assessment Goldman tonometry Gonioscopy Posterior pole health assessment Slit lamp indirect ophthalmoscopy Binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy Fundus and peripheral retinal contact ophthalmoscopy Dilated biomicroscopy with a non-contact fundus lens The labs will emphasize current standards of care. Faculty will also address the methods of practice in the context of available instrumentation and ophthalmic agents in India.
