A COMPREHENSIVE, LEARNER-FRIENDLY INTRODUCTION TO CLINICAL OPTICS
Geometrical and Visual Optics, Second Edition is a rigorous, however extraordinarily accessible textual content material that expertly combines main optics with medical functions in a way that brings key optometry topics to life. It emphasizes a vergence technique to geometrical and seen optics, reinforcing its elementary utility in medical apply. That features an open, workbook-trend design, the book avoids pointless math and focuses on these optical concepts and disadvantage-fixing experience that are the cornerstones of updated medical eye care.
In case you’re an optometry scholar who wants to understand a whole, intuitive understanding of geometrical and seen optics, Geometrical and Visual Optics belongs in your reference shelf.
FEATURES In-depth protection of geometrical and seen optics spans the entire spectrum of topics, from refraction at spherical surfaces, to skinny and thick lenses, to depth of topic, ametropia, magnification, retinal image measurement, and reflection Consider the vergence technique provides a conceptual paradigm for the book and underscores its strategic software in medical comply with Helpful chapter on main phrases and concepts evaluations light sources, rays, and pencils; vergence; and refraction and Snell's regulation Principal emphasis on core concepts, with a minimal of formulae and superfluous arithmetic Chapter-ending self-analysis points of varied complexity–with labored-out options–and two full apply examinations with options Distinctive pedagogy, along with concept-clarifying figures and chapter summaries with key formulae
PRAISE FOR DR. STEVEN SCHWARTZ:
Like his widespread book, Visual Notion: A Medical Orientation, Dr. Schwartz provides a foundational optics textual content material for eye care professionals in teaching and these in quest of a concise evaluation. Dr. Schwartz's contributions to our collective success keep unmatched. — Jeff Rabin, Optometry and Imaginative and prescient Science
