Course Description:  This course is a continuation of Ophthalmic Materials I. it includes calculations and formulae to compute marked and true power, lens thickness, and the relation of center to edge thickness. Performance of higher power lens and the importance of lens position will be considered, as well as the function of bifocals and multifocal lenses along with the proper management of their related optical effects. Lectures will include optical standards, tolerance, and an introduction to absorptive lenses with their applications.

<!–Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:

  1. identify and describe use of the different types of lens; and
  2. describe and perform ophthalmic calculations.
