Abstract

This review considers the present state of the design of spectacle lenses with respect to minimizing the side effects that are associated with their wear. Topics include spherical lens design, aspheric lens design, progressive addition lenses, spectacle lens materials, assumptions of conventional lens design, and practical assessment of spectacle lens design. Future possibilities in the manufacture of spectacle lenses are discussed briefly.
