Abstract

The topography of the surface of three types of contact lenses at different stages in their preparation has been examined by surface profilometry. The method clearly detects the different effects on the three materials of cutting and polishing and is also capable of characterizing the surface of the optical quality lenses produced, thus providing a valuable method of monitoring changes induced by usage. The technique thus has implications for examination of the influence of processing and use, on the cleaning and wetting of contact lenses. © 1986 Edward Arnold (Publishers) Ltd.
