Optics A (VS11081)

The objectives of the Optics A course are to provide students with the basic science and skills of optics with geometric and physical properties which are necessary for understanding refraction, ophthalmic lenses, ophthalmic instruments and the human eye’s optical system. This course will cover traditional optics including geometric optics, physical optics, and visual optics. The topics will be related to the clinical examination of optical and visual function. Fundamental principles, concepts, and equations will be presented in the lecture sessions, and sample problems will be solved in class. The laboratory sessions support the lecture material with hands-on experiments.
