Transcript College Of Optometry Places Ph. D Program On Compulsory Basis Dean Chester H. Phieffer A compulsory doctorate program was a new addition to the Optometry program this fall. Formerly a student could take the state exam and go into practice after five years of school. He would receive a certificate and could take his sixth year if he desired. Now the, certificate has been eliminated and a full six years are required: two years are pre-optometry; four are professional. In addition the student is required to assist a professional doctor for part of the six years. A new type of bifocal contact lens has been under experimentation by Dr. James McClendon and his assistant Jeff Burcham. The new lenses will be less complicated to fit and more convenient for wearers. One eye is fitted with a lens that is strictly for distance seeing and the other eye is fitted with a close-up lens. Another project concerns the measuring of the blind spot. If a draining infection is detected above the clavicles, then the blind spot is smaller than normal. This is done with a caecanometer which determines whether an individual's problem is visual or infectious. The college also has a clinic that is open to the public. Clinics for visual training, development, and check-ups for glasses and contact lenses are in the college clinic, which is operated by the optometry students. Hal Freeman checks the power of a pair of glasses for a patient of the clinic. 318
