Cylindrical Lenses


Cylindrical lenses have a spherical radius in one direction. This enables the light to be focused in one axis. A point of light can thus be stretched into a single line.

Cylindrical lenses can be used in a variety of different applications, including bar code scanning or laser projection, for example.
