Analysis of an optical system that contains a combination of reflecting and refracting elements may be very cumbersome by conventional vergence methods, especially if the system contains a large number of elements. This paper presents an algorithm that permits simple and rapid analysis of the paraxial optics of such systems and presents examples of optometric interest.
