The article focuses on spin coating as a factor that may help optical laboratories to increase profits and reduce processing costs. According to the author, laboratory operators should be vigilant of the coating materials they use to avoid unwanted possibilities for machine failure, unnecessary repair costs and interruption of operation. It is suggested that backside spin coating may be used to harden the lens. With a very slight additional cost for back coating, a great probability of lens breakage due to use of low quality coating may be prevented.
