Single Vision Lens Designs
Good - Aspherical (AS) SV Lenses
- Optimized by using five free parameters in one meridian.
- One aspherical surface, usually on the front, but the back surface remains a simple toric surface (two spheres at 90°).
- Provides optics similar to SPH, while improving on flatness.
- When sph and cyl power increase, the same constraints result in increasing optical errors.
Better - Double Aspherical (DAS) SV Lenses
- Optimized using nine free parameters in two perpendicular meridians and blended in between.
- Replaces the toric back surface of an AS with two aspherical shapes perpendicular to each other (atoric).
- Improvement on an AS design, but blended area still compromises the optics.
