    The most important work ever produced in the field of physiological optics, this classic is a model of scientific method and logical procedure, and it remains unmatched in its thorough and accessible approach. A Clinical and Experimental Study of Physiological Optics With a View to the Cure of Imperfect Sight Without Glasses By W.H. BATES, MD. EDITORIAL COMMENT.—To be able to do without one's eyeglasses, to read and write, to see at a distance, to recognize one's friends and enemies (debtors and creditors) across the street—to eliminate the.

The 9th European Meeting on Visual Physiological Optics (VPO) was held August 29–31, , in Athens, Greece. This issue of the Journal of the Optical Society of America A (JOSA A) is a dedicated feature, including numerous articles that span a large range of visual optics related topics, ranging from geometrical optics to visual psychophysics and from optical metrology to Followers:

    Other articles where Handbook of Physiological Optics is discussed: Hermann von Helmholtz: Early life: His greatest work, Handbook of Physiological Optics (), was characterized—like all of his scientific works—by a keen philosophical insight, molded by exact physiological investigations, and illustrated with mathematical precision and sound physical principles. The key geometric properties of the lens are its anterior and posterior surface curvatures (), while the water to protein ratio determines the gradient of refractive index (GRIN), with the refractive index being lowest in the lens periphery and highest in the lens center (Artal and Guirao, , Jones et al., ).The lens is located in the eye, behind the iris and its position in the optical Cited by:

More specifically, physiological op-tics aims at a scientific understanding of howinformationisextractedfromthelight enteringtheeyeinordertoproducesensa-tions such as brightness, shape, color, or movement.

Ophthalmic & Physiological Optics, first published inis a leading international interdisciplinary journal that addresses basic and applied questions pertinent to contemporary research in vision science and optometry.

OPO publishes original research papers, technical notes, reviews and letters and will interest researchers, educators and clinicians concerned. Book description Handbook of Visual Optics offers an authoritative overview of encyclopedic knowledge in the field of physiological optics.

It builds from fundamental concepts to the science and technology of instruments and practical procedures of vision correction, integrating expert knowledge from physics, medicine, biology, psychology, and engineering.

PHYSIOLOGICAL OPTICS: The Eye 63 Optical function Light rays incident on the eye are most strongly refracted at the cornea and are then transmitted through the aqueous humour of the anterior chamber to the crystalline lens where they are once again refracted.

After traversing the vitreous, they finally reach the photosensitive retinal elements. Every observation dealing either with the physiology of the eye or with its optical properties found a place in Helmholtz's “Physiological Optics”.

It was, in fact, a text-book describing the normal working of the organ of sight. Only a rare genius like Helmholtz could make himself a master of both aspects of the subject. That is why optics is such an important profession for people to get into.

The opticians of today are the vision specialists of tomorrow. They are the people who will ensure that everyone sees clearly enough to watch television, drive a car, read a book, and more.

Composed of six chapters, the book focuses first on the historical outline of geometrical, physical, and physiological optics. This discussion is followed by the review of basic principles of ideal and natural light and Fresnel's equations on reflection and refraction of light.
