Why not custom made lenses?

I guess this is a two part question actually.

1) Can lens designs not be sufficiently automated by computer? If software could take care of most of the process, then the customer could maybe even do the complete design on their own, visualizing the results (simulated phtos) and other parameters at home on their computer, before placing the order.

2) If custom design lenses would require custom elements, is that not something that can be economically manufactured? I assume that assembling the lenses would be straightforward and not materially different than a standard “stock” lens.

(Btw there’s a glitch on this website and I can’t scroll up to review ths post, so apologies for any typos or nonsense!)
