Searching MathSource, Wolfram Research's electronic library 
of Mathematica materials, using "optics" as a keyword
returns the following items:

0207-605: A Notebook About Optica 
0205-131: Caustic Calculations 
0204-343: Lens Lab---A Demonstration of Lens Ray-Tracing 
                     with Mathematica 

Optica is a geometric ray-tracing package, developed by 
Donald Barnhart who also wrote LensLab, which is available 
from Wolfram Research (call 1-800-441-6284 in the US or 
send email to info at wri.com). Further details about Optica 
are also available on Wolfram Research's World Wide Web 
pages. Point your Web browser to
<http://www.wri.com/mathematica/applications/appoptica.html>.

MathSource is accessible by email (mathsource at wri.com), by
anonymous ftp/gopher (mathsource.wri.com), and by World Wide
Web (http://www.wri.com/mathSource.html).

I hope this helps.
