Haynes ManualsThe Haynes It emphasizes a vergence approach to geometrical and visual optics, reinforcing its fundamental utility in clinical practice. Featuring an open, workbook-style design, the book avoids unnecessary math and focuses on those optical concepts and problem-solving skills that are the cornerstones of contemporary clinical eye care.
This book provides a concise and user-friendly guide to the most common and important numbers, laws and formulas in clinical vision science. Clinicians and trainees in ophthalmology, optometry, orthoptics, and ophthalmic dispensing, who are seeking an easy-to-use lab coat pocket size resource, will find this book to be an essential reference in clinical practice. Each chapter contains a range of tables, formulas, large illustrations and flow charts to allow readers to quickly and accurately find key facts for each type of examination procedure. For his postgraduate studies, he investigated aspects of shape and contour perception. He subsequently joined the Laboratory for Integrative Neuroscience at McGill University to investigate the visual functions of patients with traumatic brain injuries and stroke; research that involved the application of brain imaging techniques.

If you are an optometry student who wants to gain a complete, intuitive understanding of geometrical and visual optics, Geometrical and Visual Optics belongs on your reference shelf. FEATURESIn-depth coverage of geometrical and visual optics spans the full spectrum of topics, from refraction at spherical surfaces, to thin and thick lenses, to depth of field, ametropia, magnification, retinal image size, and reflection Focus on the vergence approach provides a conceptual paradigm for the book and underscores its strategic application in clinical practice Valuable chapter on basic terms and concepts reviews light sources, rays, and pencils; vergence; and refraction and Snell's law Primary emphasis on core concepts, with a minimum of formulae and superfluous mathematics Chapter-ending self-assessment problems of varying complexity--with worked-out answers--and two comprehensive practice examinations with answers Exceptional pedagogy, including concept-clarifying figures and chapter summaries with key formulaePRAISE FOR DR.
Although not a matrix optics text, matrices are used extensively in the chapters on spherical systems and off-axis aspects of astigmatism. In particular, the matrix treatment of astigmatism serves as a foundation for the recently developed, much improved statistical techniques that deal with refractive corrections and astigmatism in all its aspects.

Two inquiry-based laboratories on cylindrical and sphero-cylindrical lenses and sphero-cylindrical ametropia were implemented in the Geometrical and Physical Optics I course at the Midwestern University Arizona College of Optometry. A variety of supplies for approaching problems, including household vases, traditional optical rails and educational eye models, were provided. The traditional lab and the inquiry-based labs were compared, and subjective comments from students highlighted the advantages of the different approaches. Inquiry-based labs, in particular with practice and guidance, can enhance student understanding and provide a memorable and valuable learning experience. Key Words: optics, astigmatism, optometric education, geometric. A clear understanding of the optics of the eye remains a fundamental basis of optometric education.

Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behaviour and properties of light , including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. Because light is an electromagnetic wave , other forms of electromagnetic radiation such as X-rays , microwaves , and radio waves exhibit similar properties. Most optical phenomena can be accounted for by using the classical electromagnetic description of light. Complete electromagnetic descriptions of light are, however, often difficult to apply in practice.
I will only update the lecture notes here for thos who are unable to register for the class. The purpose of this proseminar is to give an overview of optics, optics of the eye, how the optics of the eye affect instruments that measure ocular properties and how the optics of the eye impact vision. The lecture will span basic geometrical optics of the eye, physical optics and finish with discussions of current visual optics research. There is a lab component of the course which will give you hands on access to an optical system designed for vision science applications and will give you an opportunity to do some data analysis. Learning Objectives:. Lecture Notes Take-Home Basic Optics Exam.
