- Understand several graphical representations of optical aberrations.
- Recognize how different optical designs meet the required specifications.
- Use a computational application such as OSLO 6.5 (edu or premium) in the analysis and optimization of an optical element or system.
- Transfer his/her knowledge to optometric/biomedical applications.
