    Absolutely. The amount of light reflected from the surface depends on the angle of incidence along with other factors such as whether the lens has any anti-reflection coatings or not.

    Thanks.And I want to ask if there any light propagate to the other side of the lens when total internal reflection occurs?

    No. Total reflection really is total
