This course builds on knowledge and skills gained in the geometric and physical optics (VISN 1111 course) to the optical characteristics of the human eye in relation to visual performance including errors of refraction and measurement and corrections using fundamental principles of light and optics.
Visual Optics: Ametropia and its correction, accommodation, retinal image analysis, astigmatism, measurement of visual performance, the optics of subjective refraction, near correction, optical factors affecting visual resolution, ocular refractive error corrections, aberrations, dispersion, entoptic phenomena, introduction to spectacle lenses and their subsidiary effects, design considerations of spectacle lenses.
