Find out how vision is corrected through physical and geometric optics. Discover the most common refractive errors of the eye and the anatomical causes of each. Read a spectacle prescription, transpose between cylinder forms, perform basic manual lensometry, perform basic visual acuity testing, build a compound single vision lens from trial lenses and dial a prescription into a phoropter in the proper cylinder form. Practice hands-on instruction in clinical lab settings.
