ABSTRACT
The article discusses the reproduction of the lens design and the control of the digital surfacing process. It suggests that creating a measurement map by digital surfacing can identify manufacturing defects that traditional inspection techniques cannot detect. The lens mapping and accurate power measurement will reportedly result in improved acceptance rate from patients and a reduction of returns from eye care providers.
