Optical microscopes are an essential tool in many branches of science, from medicine, biology, biochemistry, to molecular research. These devices are used to examine microscopic objects using visible light, and their main component is the built-in optical lens. The lenses serve the function of concentrating and focusing the light to allow optimal viewing of the observed objects.

In addition, lenses are used to increase the resolution of microscopes, allowing much smaller details to be seen than is possible with the naked eye. In this way, lenses are the architects of producing changes in the direction of propagation of the light beam in a predictable manner, according to the laws of optics. There are two main types of optical lenses used in microscopes: flat lenses and cylindrical lenses.
