Edge Thickness Reduction Through Lenticularization
The user defines an optimal region around the fitting cross call the optical area. Outside this region, the Lenticularization reduces the thickness with a gradual change in curvature, resulting in a thinner lens at the edge for minus lenses and thinner in the center for plus lenses.
The optical area is a zone where the optical quality is optimum. A lenticular effect saves this area for optical vision and modifies the curvature of the lens outside the saved zone to reduce thickness. The relationship between the diameter selected and obtained result is simple: The smaller the optical area is, the more the thickness can be improved.
Availability: Single Vision, Digital SV, Perspective Digital Progressive
Optical Area Default Diameters: 35, 40, 45, and 50 mm
The Optical Area can also be elliptical or adjusted to match the shape of the frame. (see below)
