Abstract

The Minkwitz theorem plays an important role in the design of progressive addition lenses. Recently, this theorem has been generalized by Esser et al. [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 34, 441 (2017) [CrossRef]  ] to non-umbilic lines under the assumption of a symmetric surface. We present a simplified derivation and generalize their findings to arbitrary but sufficiently smooth surfaces.
