Optics II (VS11002)

This course emphasizes the application of geometric optics to the properties of ophthalmic lenses, including the imaging properties of spherocylindrical lenses, base curves, lens thickness, magnification properties, lens shapes, and prismatic effects of lenses. Additional material covers principles of ophthalmic optical devices for low vision, including the magnification and field properties of telescopes and magnifiers. Lensometry skills, eyewear design, and the production of eyewear are included in the laboratory.
