An optical surface transformation (OST) method is proposed briefly in this short paper. Compared with Transformation Optics (TO), we do not need to consider what kinds of coordinate transformation should be used when designing a novel device, but only need to choose the shapes of two end surfaces (namely, the input and output surfaces of the device), which are linked by an optic-null medium (ONM) that is a highly anisotropic homogeneous medium. All devices designed by OST can be realized by some ONM. The design process of an optical device with some pre-designed function can be converted to the simple choice of the shape and size of the optical surfaces with the OST, which will become a simple and yet innovative way to design electromagnetic/optical devices.
