The new optimization method for design of LED optical elements working on the total internal reflection principle is proposed. The optimization method includes the quick raytracing technique adapted for axis-symmetrical surfaces and processing more than hundred thousand rays per second. The raytracing technique based on the approximation of the surface of revolution by a set of truncated cones is presented. As an example, the compact optical element producing uniformly illuminated circle region with angular size of 50° for an extended light source 1x1 mm is computed and simulated. The light efficiency of the designed optical element is about 91.3% and the root-mean-square error of the generated irradiance distribution is less than 10%.
