Aspheric lenses seem like a good thing. We read them on labels and on websites when talking about the features of a pair of glasses. But what exactly is an aspheric lens?
Simply, aspheric eyeglasses feature lenses that are thin. With the help of new technology, aspheric lenses are able to be made with flatter curves than conventional lenses, giving them slimmer, more attractive profiles.
Aspheric lenses have a more complex front surface that gradually changes in curvature from the center of the lens out to the edge. They are also usually high-index lenses which helps create the lens into a noticeably slimmer, thinner and lighter lens compared to conventional plastic lenses.
Because aspheric lenses have flatter curves than conventional lenses, they fit closer to your face. This can be a major benefit not only to your vision but also greatly reduce undesired magnification and minification effects. This allows the world to look more natural to the wearer and the wearer’s eyes look more natural to everyone else.
