What is lenticularization?

Lenticularization is a process developed to minimize the thickness and weight of lenses. The user defines an optimal region around the fitting cross (Optical area); outside this region the Lenticularization reduces the thickness with a gradual change in curvature, giving as a result a thinner lens in the edge for minus lenses and thinner in the center for plus lenses.

Optical area

Optical area is a zone where the optical quality is optimum. 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.
