Making a Spectacle: Videos
A video, produced by the Institute of Physics (IOP), showing people working in an optician's. They use physics to provide the correct lenses and frames for customers.
The video is presented as a whole and, for ease of use, in three sections:
Testing: the optometrist uses a range of tests to check how well eyes work (3:03)
Making up the spectacles: the technician brings everything together to make a perfect pair of spectacles (2:05)
Frames: you can choose from a range of frames made from special materials (1:21)
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
