Abstract

This is a study to show that by using chemical treating process on ophthalmic lenses, the relative impact resistance of these lenses, can be maintained using much thinner lenses than if a heat treating method were used. All the lenses used in this study were thinner than 2.2mm center thickness and were tested by the standard drop test. The study contains a review of the related literature and recommendations for further study.
