Subject Title
Applied Ophthalmic Optics

Subject Description

Building on the theory of physical and geometric optics, students explore the practical aspects of lens theory and applied optics.

Credit Status
One credit toward the Opticianry Diploma Program.

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

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

2. Determine lens power using the lens gauge and apply formulas to calculate lens surface and nominal power.

3. Analyze the effects of prism on the ophthalmic prescriptions and calculate the total prismatic effect

4. Analyze the implications on vision of a lens when it is positioned at a different distance than refracted.

5. Determine the implications of changes in position of wear and determine the lens power change when placed in a vertically tilted or wrapped-around frame.

6. Discuss the effect of manifest over refraction and calculate the resultant power

7. Analyze the effect of lens thickness on a pair of eyeglasses and perform calculations to determine center and edge thickness.

8. Discuss the effect of base curve and lens power on image magnification and calculate the total image magnification induced.

9. Explain the implications of lens aberrations on vision.
