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.
