Why is PEGLens Manufacturable
A daily disposable lens must be produced inexpensively for it to be affordable to consumers and profitable for manufacturers.
The downside to high-oxygen SiHy materials is they are complicated to manufacture, results in high cost of goods ad lengthy time to market.
PEGLens is manufacturable because:
- PEGLens monomer is quite simple and efficient to produce.
- PEGLens manufacturing can be integrated into standard cast molding production lines.
- Raw material inputs are off the shelf and cheap.
- Bulk polymerization is achieved without solvents. Little or no extraction of toxic elements is needed.
The result is a lens manufacturing process geared for productivity.
