Transcript In the dispensary of the College of Optometry Dr. Noel Logan uses a pupilo- meter to measure the distance from the center of the bridge of Dr. Daniel Shea's nose to the center of his pupil. Jerry Boring, below, runs one of the many tests necessary to determine the extent of a child's vision abnormality. A large part of the practicing optometrist's patients are children from the Houston area. Ken Porter and Frank Belgar, left, study the effect of vision defects on physical coordination. Above, Bruce Barns looks deep into the eyes of one of his pretty, younsr patients. And below, Dean Chester Phieffer notes the improvements made in the college last year. Optometry Receives Grant; Betters In an effort to meet the critical need for qualified optometrists, the federal government granted the College of Optometry $107,000 last year for improvement of its teaching program. One provision of the Health Professions Act allocated funds for enlarging clinic facilities. This enabled the school to accept a full enrollment of 240 capable students. However, only one of every four applicants was admitted into the college. Dean Chester Phieffer noted that the replacements of antiquated equipment improved the clinic's research methods. The use of a laser in examinations has detected various eye diseases. Of particular significance was the study of the effect of vision problems in relation to children's achievement 328 Clinic's Research difficulties. Dr. Stanley Meyers explained that many hyperactive children with short attention spans fail in school because of visual constrictions. As pointed out by Dean Phieffer, the College of Optometry is concerned with providing clear, comfortable and efficient vision so that students of all ages will not be hindered in the learning process by poor eyesight. 329
