ABSTRACT: The proposed system is for designing progressive lenses. This method permits generation of lens design based on the head and eye movements of an individual. For this a camera is used for imaging the head and eye of a person. It relies on tracking algorithms to robustly track a person’s head and eye movements. This system classifies rotation in all viewing directions, and detects head movements. Based on this information head frequency map is generated. Once the eye and head frequency map is generated they are combined to form a generalized frequency map. This map is then used to suggest the patient with the customized progressive lens.
