An aspheric lens or asphere (often labeled ASPH on eye pieces) is a lens whose surface profiles are not portions of a sphere or cylinder. In photography, a lens assembly that includes an aspheric element is often called an aspherical lens.
Grinding spherical optics is relatively straightforward process, but aspheric surfaces are far more difficult. If a convex and a concave spherical surface are rubbed together, both will become more spherical. In an aspheric surface, the radius of curvature varies as a function of axial height.
