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
