Abstract

Refractive parameters are the main design and evaluation parameters of freeform spectacle lenses. In this paper, the mathematical model of refractive parameters is established, and the refractive power distribution on the whole surface is drawn with a radial basis function. The measurement methods are analyzed, and typical freeform spectacle lenses are measured with a freeform verifier. The refractive power distribution on the whole surface, the cylinder view, and the refractive power curve along the progressive corridor are drawn up. There are no evident image changes on the whole surface. The refractive power smoothly varies along the progressive corridor. In comparing the results with the analysis, measurement results are in agreement with the calculation.
