Abstract
This paper is concerned with the development of lens design software for personal computers, and specifically relates to the programs developed by Kidger Optics over the period from 1980, (the Mills College conference) until mid-1985. Over this period we have seen enormous advances in the development of personal computers, and consequent developments in optical design programs. This paper discusses both the hardware developments and also the software advances that have been made possible.
