The process of thinning the edges of a minus lens or centers of plus lenses using a carrier shape or change of curvature. It involves specifying an area of the lens as the ‘visual area’, which is the part of the lens the patient is intended to actually look through. This ‘visual area’ is also referred to as a ‘bowl’, and can be as small as 30mm. The balance of the lens has edges thinned in minus lenses and centers thinned in plus.
