19-1 OPTI 201R Fall 2010 Class Exercise #1: Gaussian-reduce the human eye wearing eyeglasses. The Human Eye, with Eyeglasses: 1 2 1 2 1 16 1 eye eye tot tot glasses eye glasses eye eye tot eye tf mm t n ! ! ! !! " # " # $ % & # $ % # …the power of the combination of the eyeglasses and the eye remains unchanged… …so why wear the eyeglasses? The back principal plane has shifted: ’ (’ ( ’ ( ’ ( 2 1 2 1 eye eye eye tot glasses glasses glasses eye f t ff ) * * % +, %% ## # -. /0 % # If a person is near-sighted (myopic), his/her eye is too long (or perhaps eye is too large, making f eye too small). Either way, objects at infinity are imaged in front of the retina , and appear blurry to the myopic person. Said another way, the distance F retina * 1 is too large. Eyeglasses (having negative power) correct this by moving the back principal point P * and the back focal point F * of the eye/glasses system towards the retina (if glasses is negative, then * is positive and the image is now formed on the retina, assuming glasses is chosen correctly).
