1. A vehicle lamp, comprising:
a light source unit;
a first optical member in which a plurality of incident lenses are arranged on an incident surface thereof to which light generated from the light source unit is incident;
a second optical member in which a plurality of exit lenses are arranged on an exit surface thereof from which the light incident from the first optical member is emitted; and
a shield unit including a plurality of shields disposed between the plurality of incident lenses and the plurality of exit lenses,
wherein a direction perpendicular to the incident surface of the first optical member and the exit surface of the second optical member is inclined by a predetermined angle greater than 0° with respect to an optical axis of the light source unit to allow a top side of the first optical member to be closer to the light source unit than a bottom side of the first optical member and to allow a top side of the second optical member to be closer to the light source unit than a bottom side of the second optical member,
wherein an incident surface of a first incident lens among the plurality of incident lenses and an exit surface of a first exit lens that corresponds to the first incident lens among the plurality of exit lenses are formed asymmetrically with respect to a first reference line drawn to pass through a focal point disposed between the first incident lens and the first exit lens, the first reference line being parallel with the optical axis of the light source unit, and
wherein an upper portion and a lower portion of the incident surface of the first incident lens have substantially equal heights with respect to a second reference line connecting an inflection point of the first incident lens and an inflection point of the first exit lens, and an upper portion and a lower portion of the exit surface of the first exit lens have substantially equal heights with respect to the second reference line, the second reference line being inclined from the first reference line by the predetermined angle.
