This applications-oriented book covers a variety of interrelated topics under the study of optics. For physics and engineering, it covers lasers and fiber optics, emphasizing applications to the optics of vision. For optometry, it discusses the optics of the eye, geometrical optics, interference, diffraction, and polarization. Emphasizing the optics of vision, the book presents a vital and interesting applications of optical principles. It also includes several specialized sections on vision: a history of vision and spectacles; the use of vergences to handle refraction of the eye; the use of vergence to handle errors in refraction of the eye; optics of cyndrical lenses and application to astigmatism; aberrations in vision; structures and optical models of the eye; and the use of lasers in therapy for ocular defects. A valuable reference on optics for professional optometrists, physicists, and engineers.[via]
