Spherical Lens Applications


The study of spherical lenses is one of the great assets of geometric optics. Through knowledge of the behavior of light rays we can understand that through them it was possible to improve almost all optical instruments, and enable the invention of equipment that brought surprising technological advances, such as microscopes and telescopes.

Perhaps the most common application of spherical lenses in everyday life is its use to correct vision problems, which are used to correct the possible defective formation of images by an eyeball with problems of myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia, strabismus, among others.
