This course focuses on basics of geometrical optics and its applications in the field of optical design of simple optical elements and systems (lenses, mirrors, prisms, telescopes, etc.) and their imaging parameters (aberrations, optical resolution, magnification, field of view, depth of focus, etc.). The second part of the course deals with a description and analysis of a human eye as an optical imaging system and the design and analysis of various types of spectacle lenses for correction of refractive errors. Types of spectacle lenses and their imaging properties.
Seminars are focused on fundamental calculations in geometrical, visual, and ophthalmic optics.
