This is an interesting and informative session that looks at a variety of optical situations that are commonly misunderstood. Have you ever wondered WHY you have to turn a bifocal around to get the proper add power? Did you know that with most of today's frames you can't measure the effective diameter of the frame with a ruler? If you're using the target of the lensometer to focus the eyepiece, you're doing it wrong! These and other interesting and useful topics will expose the truth about some of the most misunderstood issues in the profession.
