Optical Laboratory I.
- Department of Natural Sciences
Practical course where students will learn the basics of spectacle lens and frames applications with respect to refractive status of the eye and practical needs of a customer. They will also practice the technology (cutting, grinding, edging, polishing) of spectacle lenses processing, centering the lens, bevelling the lens into frames and adjusting the spectacle frames. The course makes possible to apply theoretical knowledge from opthalmic optics in practice.
Practically making of glasses, measuring of glass lenses, repairing of glasses.

In the practical part of the course students will learn how to choose a proper frames and spectacle lenses for individual customers. They will also practice the technology (cutting, grinding, edging, polishing) of spectacle lenses processing, centering the lens, bevelling the lens into frames and adjusting the spectacle frames.
