This text is intended primarily for physicists and deals with geometrical optics from a mathematical point of view, although the author states that it demands "only a modest mathematical equipment in analytical geometry and elementary calculus." Until at least the calculus is required for those entering the study of ophthalmology, there will be few who will find this book readable.
At the end of each chapter are a series of exercises testing the student's comprehension of the text.
