This puts a burden on more tidy co-workers. g. Conrady, 1960; Johnson, 1960) go into exquisite detail on how to clean optics. Here I restrict myself to simple concepts. First, try not to get them dirty. Although a dwindling problem, a cardinal principle is to keep tobacco smoke away from them, for it is especially hard to remove. Also, protect them from dust. This may mean covering them, say, with a plastic sheet (keep the same side down on successive uses) when they are not in use. 31) vulnerable to scratching; storing them upright, then, is best.

When it becomes soft enough to work, wrap it around a U-shaped piece of metal, insert it into the mouth, and have the observer clamp down on it with a fixed bite for about 1 min or until the wax hardens. The observer should bite far enough so that all the teeth make contact with the wax without hitting the underlying metal. One or two cakes provide a good covering for a single bar. The U-shape follows the contour of the bite, allowing room for the tongue and perhaps a few spoken words, in addition to the prosaic bite-bar grunt.

In all three cases, the head and, hence, the eye have been moved upwards until the edge of the iris lies close to the optic axis. If the eye is too far away from the Maxwellian lens (top of the figure), the iris blocks a part of the beam after the rays have crossed and darkens the top part of the Maxwellian lens (the dotted lines represent a blocked ray, and the shaded part of the retinal image, the blocked part of the image). If the eye is too close to the Maxwellian lens (middle of the figure), the iris blocks a part of the beam before the rays have crossed and darkens the bottom part of the Maxwellian lens.
