Optics of the Human Eye: Second Edition (Multidisciplinary and Applied Optics) 2nd Edition

Optics of the Human Eye: Second Edition (Multidisciplinary and Applied Optics) 2nd Edition

This book describes the optical structure and optical properties of the human eye. For ease of reference, the most commonly useful topics are at the beginning and topics with narrower appeal are placed towards the end. The book is divided into five sections, covering:

Basic optical structure of the eye, including the refracting components, the pupil, axes, and simple models of the eye
Image formation and refraction of the eye, including refractive errors, measurement, and correction
Interactions between light and the eye, considering transmission, reflection, and scatter in the media and at the fundus
Aberrations and retinal image quality
Depth-of-field and age-related changes in the optics of the eye
There have been many developments in the field of visual optics since the first edition was published in 2000. There have been advances in instrumentation for imagery, biometry, and aberrations of the eye. The refraction anomaly of myopia has increased in prevalence throughout the world, and is getting increasing attention because of its association with ocular pathology in the middle and later years of life. Ocular aberrations are now considered in terms of Zernike polynomials rather than Taylor polynomials. Aberrations can be manipulated to better understand their effects on visual performance to improve imagery of the retina for the betterment of diagnosis of various ocular conditions, and to treat the progression of myopia in children. To deal with these developments, the section on aberrations and retinal image quality has undergone considerable revision.

This book will be an invaluable purchase for all those with an interest in vision, such as optometrists, ophthalmologists, vision scientists, optical physics, and student of visual optics. An understanding of the optics of the human eye is particular important to designers of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment and visual optical systems such as telescopes.
