Class Description:

 

In many ways the perceptual processes of vision are abstract and inexplicable;

however, image formation, which is critical to the visual process, is governed by

 concrete physical criteria. This class will analyze physical and optical principles,

 with an emphasis on the measurement of light and on its behavior in image

formation. Geometrical optics in physical modalities will be investigated critically in

 experimental and clinical venues.

This class is a prerequisite for Ophtalmic Optics I (OPTO 253), Visual Optics

(OPTO 273), Contact lenses I & II (OPTO 354 & OPTO 355), and Physical

 Optics (OPTO 356) . This class meets for two hours each week.

 

Educational Objectives:

 

Through lecture, discussion, group activity and given clinical scenarios, this class

 will provide the student with the knowledge and practical application of that

knowledge so that the student will show the following understanding and abilities:

 

1. The student will be able to solve optical problems in experimental and clinical

settings, regarding the behavior, management, and manipulation of light, and

image formation.

 

2. The student will be competent in the biomedical application of instrumentation

used in light measurement.
