Aaron Shukla, PhD, CPMT has designed Clinical Optics Primer for Ophthalmic Medical Personnel to include everyday examples that may be directly applied to clinical work. Each chapter throughout the text explains one optics concept in a concise account and includes applicable illustrations, formulae, laws, calculations, and review questions. Numerous examples of clinical applications are also included that address problems presented by patients in eye clinics.
Some important laws of optics and their clinical applications covered:
- Lasers, polarization interference, and fluorescence
- Snell’s law
- Total internal reflection
Some important formulae in optics and their clinical applications covered:
- Vergence equation
- Power of prisms
- Optical system of the eye
- Accommodation and age
- Refractive errors
- Prentice’s Rule, decentration and induced prism
- Glasses and contact lenses
With the most up to date information for clinical optics, and two chapters solely devoted to the metric system and basic optical mathematics, Clinical Optics Primer for Ophthalmic Medical Personnel: A Guide to Laws, Formulae, Calculations, and Clinical Applications is essential for all ophthalmic assistants, technicians, and technologists, as well as optometrists, and ophthalmology residents.
