Addressing Aberrations

Aspheric cemented lenses leverage advanced design principles to effectively address the issue of chromatic and spherical aberrations, simultaneously minimizing distortions and elevating image quality.

These lenses offer superior performance compared to their conventional counterparts, making them a popular choice for precision-driven applications across an array of fields.

Integrated Aspheric Lenses

Designed specifically for advanced eyepieces used in ophthalmic examinations, these dual-aspheric cemented lenses offer exceptional versatility. They integrate smoothly into both large stationary equipment and compact, portable head-mounted devices.

The aspherical curvature of the lenses enhances their performance, significantly boosting imaging quality and providing eye care professionals with accurate diagnostic tools.

Design and Manufacturing

Unlike conventional spherical lenses, the optical components of these lenses benefit from a unique configuration comprising spherical and aspheric surfaces.

The intricate design of the aspheric surfaces has strict processing requirements, demanding the implementation of an integrated molding and bonding process to ensure sufficient product quality and optimum optical performance.

Design of Two-Aspheric Cemented Lenses

Lightweight design and compact optimization are key to ensuring a comfortable, streamlined user experience.

Compact lens dimensions and lightweight treatments enhance comfort during extended wear while allowing for seamless integration of the lenses into a range of head-worn devices, improving their overall usability and portability.

Performance Enhancement

Advancements in lens technology are poised to enhance visual experiences in mixed reality (MR), augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) settings by offering clearer and more lifelike visuals. These improvements in reducing optical distortions and enhancing image quality will deepen user immersion in convincingly authentic virtual environments.


The introduction of two-aspheric cemented lenses marks a significant achievement for Shanghai Optics, reflecting our commitment to optical excellence.

These lenses are meticulously produced by precisely bonding two aspheric elements, resulting in superior correction of optical aberrations and improved overall performance. Their use in ophthalmic examinations highlights our dedication to pushing the boundaries of optical technology and providing top-tier solutions for the medical field.
