The Eye and Visual Optical Instruments

The Eye and Visual Optical Instruments


by George Smith; David A. Atchison

There is a wide variety of optical instruments where the human eye forms an integral part of the overall system. This book provides a detailed description of the visual ergonomics of such instruments. The book begins with a section on image formation and basic optical components. The various optical instruments that can be adequately described using geometrical optics are then discussed, followed by a section on diffraction and interference, and the instruments based on these effects. There are separate sections devoted to ophthalmic instruments and aberration theory, with a final section covering visual ergonomics in depth. Containing many problems and solutions, this book will be of great use to undergraduate and graduate students of optometry, optical design, optical engineering, and visual science, and to professionals working in these and related fields.
