Example text

Y. j t Posterior principal plane These 2 thin lenses in air produce an image that is upright, real, and the same size as the object. (f/lustration developed by Kevin M. Miller, MD, and rendered by C. H. -·- - - -- - - - -- -- -- - - -- - - 36 • Clinical Optics point is the image of the anterior principal point, and the same relationship holds for the nodal points. The focal points, however, are not conjugate. Two pairs of cardinal points are associated with planes: the focal pofnts and the principal points, but there is no such thing as a nodal plane associated with a nodal point.

If light starts at the object and moves to the right, how does it ever reach the lens? Putting that rather important question aside for the moment, apply the LME: ·? :? :? :? 20m Although this situation seems unrealistic, it does have practical value, as discussed later. For now, it is enough to understand that even in this case, the LME can be used to calculate an image location (Fig 1-37). To distinguish this case from those of the previous questions, the object is called virtual. The rule is that an object to the left of P is real, whereas an object to the right of P is virtual.

The virtual image formed by the first lens is a real object for the second lens. When this imaginary object i used as a reference point, it is easy to see that the vergence at the second lens is -4 D. When light leaves 30 • Clinical Optics the second lens, it has a vergence of+ 2 D, forming a real image 50 cm behind the second lens (Fig l-27C). In this example, an imaginary riference point was used to determine the vergence at the second lens. In geometric optics, this reference point is commonly called the virtual image formed by the first lens.
