Thanks to advances in optical design technology, eyeglass lenses can be made with flatter curves, which give them a slimmer and more attractive profile. Unlike ordinary lenses, aspheric lenses have a complex front surface that gradually changes in curvature. Elite Vision Care, your eye care expert, explains further below:
What Are Aspheric Lenses?
Aspheric lenses are noticeably thinner, lighter and slimmer than conventional plastic or glass lenses. The difference is particularly dramatic for lenses that correct severe farsightedness. Lenses that correct farsightedness are convex and bulge forward from the frame. Eyeglasses with aspheric lenses look much better.
Benefits of Aspheric Lenses
Aspheric lenses prevent the unnaturally magnified bug-eyed look that comes with thick conventional lenses. Thick conventional lenses also have undesired magnification and minification effects. Aspheric lenses fit closer to the face and provide a more natural view of the world. As an eyeglasses and contact lenses expert, we recommend them because they prevent vision distortion.
Aspheric lenses also allow patients with a strong prescription to wear a larger selection of frames. Other lenses are sometimes too thick to look good with some frame designs. Lastly, aspheric lenses provide patients with better peripheral vision and a wider field of view.
