Components and Features of Optical Lens

The optical components which are designed to diverge or focus light are known as the optical lens. It is used in a wide variety of applications ranging from laser processing to microscopy. Optical lens consists of single or multiple elements. It is used in camera lens and binoculars.

There are different components of optical lens which can vary according to its applications. It is used in the field of defence, life sciences, imaging and in industrial fields. Optical lens is available in different profiles which vary according to its specifications. When light is passed through the optical lens, it creates different images according to the profile of the lens.

The PCX or the Plano-convex lens makes the light to focus in one single point. The Double-convex lens also focuses the light to a single point. Both these types of optical lenses are used for various applications. The Double-concave or the DCV and the Plano-concave lens or the PCV causes the light to diverge when it is passed through the lens.

Today different types of optical lenses are made available through advanced technological developments. Some of the latest varieties of lenses include the aspheric lenses and the achromatic lenses.

Optical lenses are used in various fields such as laser machines, microscopes, laboratory equipments and so forth. It is also used for contact lenses and other optical instruments. It is also used in dental equipments, ophthalmic equipments and other medical fields.

In addition to its diverse usage and applications in medical field, it is also widely used in photography. It is used in camera lenses to obtain picture perfect photos.

With the wide usage of these lenses, it is quite easy to find huge varieties of optical lenses even in online stores. It is made available in fiber, plastic and glass varieties to suit different purposes. Optical lens can be obtained in different tints which include transition, colored, crizal and anti-reflection. There are lenses which are coated for UV protection and Infrared rays.

Optical lens can be bought in either concave or convex varieties from online stores at different rates.
