The optical prescription for best photopic acuity at the test distance and the level of uniform convergent lens blur (i.e., positive-sphere dioptric power) used to induce the 20/40 (2.0 arcmin) and 20/30 (1.5 arcmin) acuity levels were implemented with an AO Master Phoroptor (AO Reichert Scientific Instruments, Buffalo, New York).
In 1637, he published his Geometry, Dioptric, and Meteors, which were prefaced with his even more famous Discourse on the Method of Rightly Conducting the Reason and Seeking for Truth in the Sciences.

In the case of Ion Barbu, from whose modernist poetry Perry selects "Dioptrie" ("Dioptric") and, of course, "Joc secund" ("Counter Play"), what attracts him is the Romanian poet's "multiplaned perception of reality." Interestingly, Perry sees in this type of vision a specific feature of the Romanian mind: the ambiguity of double meaning, the perception of converging but distinct planes of reality.
