In this paper, we present a rigorous analytical solution for the bi-aspheric singlet lens design problem. The input of the general formula presented here is the first surface of the singlet lens; this surface must be continuous and such that the rays inside the lens do not cross each other. The output is the correcting second surface of the singlet; the second surface is such that the singlet is free of spherical aberration.
