Optical Devices in Ophthalmology and Optometry

Medical technology is a fast growing field. Optical Devices in Ophthalmology and Optometry gives a comprehensive review of modern optical technologies in ophthalmology and optometry alongside their clinical deployment. It bridges the technology and clinical domains and will be suitable in both technical and clinical environments. The book introduces and develops basic physical methods (in optics, photonics, and metrology) and their applications in the design of optical systems for use in ophthalmic medical technology. Medical applications described in detail demonstrate the advantage of utilizing optical-photonic methods. Exercises and solutions for each chapter help understand and apply basic principles and methods.
