Fresnel lenses were first used in lighthouses as it was the most efficient way to capture and direct light.
Tests showed that while an open flame lost nearly 97% of its light, and a flame with reflectors behind it still lost 83% of its light, the fresnel lens was able to capture all but 17% of its light. Because of its amazing efficiency with just a 1000 watt bulb, a first-order Fresnel lens can generate a 680,000 candlepower beam visible up to 21 miles out to sea if set high enough
