A basic optics textbook that integrates relevant visual and ophthalmic optics material with basic geometric and physical optics. Dr. Keating's book uses the vergence approach to optics as well as the wavefront approach to vergence as an aid to developing optics intuition.

Completely revised and updated, you will benefit from new and rewritten sections on: axial magnification * Jackson Cross Cylinder tests * retinoscopy reflex motions * field of view * the optics of indirect ophthalmoscopy * optical aberrations * diffractive lenses * the Doppler shift * lasers and the similarities and differences of Gaussian laser beams versus the propagation of light from a point source * plus, a new appendix on angles and basic trigonometry. Although not a matrix optics text, matrices are used extensively in the chapters on spherical systems and off-axis aspects of astigmatism. In particular, the matrix treatment of astigmatism serves as a foundation for the recently developed, much improved statistical techniques that deal with refractive corrections and astigmatism in all its aspects.About the Author:
