The article discusses ways to prevent laboratory breakage or error in lens manufacturing processes. In order to lead to zero breakage, each person must be trained to operate equipment, follow procedures without mistake and use the lab management software without compensating. According to Chris Bowers, operations for Walma Optical, the primary cause of breakage is calibration or human error. Steve Dombey of CC Systems says one of the most common errors is in the area of protocol and procedure.
