There is a wide variety of optical instruments where the human eye forms an integral part of the overall system. This book provides a detailed description of the visual ergonomics of such instruments. The book begins with a section on image formation and basic optical components. The various optical instruments that can be adequately described using geometrical optics are then discussed, followed by a section on diffraction and interference, and the instruments based on these effects. There are separate sections devoted to ophthalmic instruments and aberration theory, with a final section covering visual ergonomics in depth. Containing many problems and solutions, this book will be of great use to undergraduate and graduate students of optometry, optical design, optical engineering, and visual science, and to professionals working in these and related fields.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Eye and Visual Optical Instruments will not become dated quickly and covers a tremendous range of topics ... this book is an outstanding reference work. It is lucid, gives a good feel for important concepts to anyone willing to work through it, and is a gold mine of practical information. It is a must for any appropriate library and will have great longevity ... I recommend it to anyone with an interest in practical optics.' Nigel Douglas, Optics and Photonics News
'Such a comprehensive book should certainly be bought by all optometry and vision science departments and it would not be out of place in psychology libraries. At a price of GBP35 (for the paperback version) it is just about in the price range of students as well.' Mark Scase, Bulletin of the Applied Vision Association
'What I am looking for in an optics text is a book that simply explains the principle, builds on the basics and provides example, and problems for the student to practice ... The Eye and Visual Optical Insturments fills nearly all these roles admirably ... The language is beautifully clear, economical and complete in expression, and the diagrams are marvelously simple ...'. Andrew Carkeet, New Zealand Optics
