    Theory of Colours (German: Zur Farbenlehre) is a book by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about the poet's views on the nature of colours and how these are perceived by humans.

Schrodinger. the whole established analogy is more on geometrical optics than real physical or undulatory optics. The fundamental mechanical conception is that of the path or the orbit of the particle and it corresponds to the conception of rays in optical analogy.

Vision theory. Before the Book of Optics was written, two theories of vision existed. The extramission or emission theory was forwarded by the mathematicians Euclid and Ptolemy, who asserted that certain forms of radiation are emitted from the eyes onto the object which is being seen.

When these rays reached the object they allowed the viewer to perceive its color, shape.

Visible light is usually defined as having wavelengths in the range of – nanometers (nm), or × 10 −7 to × 10 −7 m, between the infrared (with longer wavelengths) and the ultraviolet (with shorter wavelengths).

Theory and Practice of Optics and Refraction in its fourth edition continues to be a part of Modern System of Ophthalmology (MSO) Series.

Without altering the basic text and layout, each chapter in this edition has been thoroughly revised to keep abreast with newer concepts and principles of optics and refraction involved in investigative as well as treatment modalities. Exploring various aspects of the science of optics, these illustrations were all featured in the French science writer Amédée Guillemin’s popular textbook Les phénomènes de la physique () and later reprinted in his five-volume magnum opus, Le monde physique () (of which you can see a condensed English version here).

Then Euclid ( B.C.) summarized fundamental knowledge of optics, such as reflection, diffusion and vision, into a book called “Optics”. These concepts on light established in the age of Ancient Greece rendered a large effect up until the appearance of.
