Advanced optical design technology allows aspheric eyeglass lenses to be made with flatter curves than conventional lenses, this therefore gives these lenses a slimmer more attractive profile. Aspheric lenses have a complex front surface that gradually changes in curvature from the centre of the lens out to the edge.
Aspheric lenses and slimmer profiles
Most of these lenses are also high-index lenses, the combination of an aspheric design with high-index lens materials create lens that are noticeably slimmer, thinner and lighter than conventional glass or plastic lenses.
A more natural view
These lenses have flatter curves that conventional lenses they fit close to your face, this is a benefit for anyone wearing a strong correction.
