People with bad sight usually wish for high magnification and a wide visual field. It is not easy to fulfill this wish since high magnification normally means a distortion of the image in the periphery of the visual field. However, the ML Aplanat system solves this problem by dividing the power into two aplanatic lenses. The way in which the lenses are combined allows high magnification and minimal image distortion.
The image quality is excellent with a sharp focus from edge to edge. This is achieved by dividing the power into two lenses and turning the plano surfaces towards the eye and the object being looked at.
The large visual field is an essential part of ML Aplanat since it affects orientation, comfort and confidence.
There are five different powers of lenses in High index mineral (35 mm). Each lens is inscribed with tiny identification marks indicating the power of the lens.
