Completely revised and updated, you will benefit from new and rewritten sections on: axial magnification
  • Jackson Cross Cylinder tests
  • retinoscopy reflex motions
  • field of view
  • the optics of indirect ophthalmoscopy
  • optical aberrations
  • diffractive lenses
  • the Doppler shift
  • lasers and the similarities and differences of Gaussian laser beams versus the propagation of light from a point source
  • plus, a new appendix on angles and basic trigonometry.

  • 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.
