Subject Title
Geometric Optics

Subject Description

This subject expands on the theory of physical optics and relates it to specific optical systems. Students resolve geometric optics problems related to thick and astigmatic lenses, microscopes and telescopes.

Credit Status
One credit toward the Opticianry Diploma Program

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1. Analyze the behavior of light through thin astigmatic lenses in air and calculate the location and size of the circle of least confusion

2. Perform calculations to determine sphero-cylindrical lenses powers in various meridians and when combined.

3. Analyze the behavior of light through a thick lens and lens systems in air and

apply formulas to determine the back and front vertex powers .

4. Explain Gullstrand's simplified schematic eye, state its parameters and calculate the total power of the human eye.

5. Define lens stops and calculate the lens stops of various eyepieces and

lenses.

6. Describe telescopic and microscopic lens systems and calculate their

magnifying power

7. Explain the concept and identify applications for angular magnification
