Case Study: Dispensing Optics
Produced for Future Morph, this short video looks at several students following opthalmic dispensing and contact lens courses. The students describe the work they are doing with lenses and how this relates to the science they learnt at GCSE level. It illustrates some of the career opportunities available in the eyecare industry.
Also included are some simple student activities, with accompanying teacher guidance, that illustrate how images are formed with lenses.

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.
