Title: Apparatus for grinding eyeglass lens

Abstract: An eyeglass lens grinding apparatus which is designed to ensure that the lens processing operation proceeds smoothly enough to streamline the overall process flow. Processing information about right and left eyeglass lenses is provided on the basis of information about configuration of the eyeglass frame and information about a layout of each eyeglass lens with respect to the eyeglass frame. The processing information about the eyeglass lenses is stored in a memory even after processing has ended. Information about size correction is entered to modify the processing information. Lens corrective processing information is provided on the basis of the entered corrective information and the processing information stored in the memory. After sequentially processing the right and left eyeglass lenses on the basis of the processing information, corrective processing is carried out on the basis of the corrective processing information.
