Ophthalmic lens computation: offering optimal vision to each individual
By Sébastien Fricker, M.Sc., Optical design manager, ESSILOR Center of Innovation & Technology Europe

A pair of glasses is a medical device individualized to each wearer. Despite its apparent simplicity, the design of an ophthalmic lens requires a combination of mathematics, optics, vision sciences and scientific computation. How to determine, in a totally unsupervised way, the optimum and unique solution for hundreds of millions of individuals? In this presentation, we will review the challenges of visual correction: designing new ophthalmic lenses and modeling their performances.

Biography: Sébastien Fricker graduated as a Physics Engineer from Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France) in 2000 and obtained a master in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, USA) in 2002. He worked for 10 years in Research and Development in the optical metrology industry. Sébastien joined Essilor Research and Development in 2012, where he works on ophthalmic lens design methods and lens performance modeling.
