When picking out a pair of reading glasses you probably take a lot of things into consideration. But one big reason you may pick out a certain pair of frames over another is because of the aspheric factor. But what exactly is a aspheric lens?
According to Wikipedia, aspheric lenses feature a more complex surface profile, which can reduce or eliminate spherical aberration and also reduce other optical aberrations compared to a simple lens. Aspheric lens can often replace a much more complex multi-lens system.
By using this type of lens, glasses can become smaller and lighter. This will help extremely with comfort, as your glasses won’t weigh down on your nose and cause irritating red marks on your bridge. It also lets the viewer see in a much more natural way, that they wouldn’t be able to see by using a simple, traditional lens. Lastly, aspheric lenses allows glasses to be closer to your face, which makes reading and seeing a lot easier on your eyes.
