Don’t forget to regularly clean your Q-2100 Digital Lens System. The production process involves varying materials that produce small amounts of debris with each job processed. Buildup and leftover residue can cause your unit to perform below its optimal levels. Keep your system looking and running like new with the following daily & weekly tasks.
Keep production area and machines clean wiping up any spills
Remove and clean out excess fluid from the spin bowls and blot dry
Clean excess coating build up from the spin stages
Wipe down the drawers in the main chamber and post cure chamber
Visually inspect the filter plates for any residue and wipe clean with Kaydrys and Q-Spray if necessary
Ensure that all molds are cleaned and returned to the mold storage cabinet and never leave molds to soak overnight
Top off all cleaning solutions and monomer as needed
Remove the Q-2100’s front panels and visually inspect the air filters. Clean the filters with tap water and a mild soap if necessary. Blot dry and allow to dry overnight before returning to the panel
With the oven at room temperature, clean the glass plate in the top of the oven box (DO NOT attempt to clean the glass while the oven is hot). Use Q-Spray and a clean, nonabrasive cloth to clean. Reinstall the front panels
Change Q-Soak solutions at least once per week unless required more frequently due to volume or contamination
Remove spin bowls to soak overnight in a separate tub or bucket and then scrub with a scrub pad and rinse with hot water. Due to volume or debris build up this process may be required more frequently than once per week.
Ortiz Eye Associates has been utilizing the Optical Dynamics Digital Lens System for over 12 years with marked success. Chris Ortiz, Lab Manager, has been actively involved in lens production from installation. A busy location, Chris and his team produce 30 pair per month or more with their unit.
“I am pleased with the quality of the lenses we offer,” said Chris. “The hard coat is second to none and we offer all available photochromics including sunSMART grey, sunSMART brown, and ultraSUN,” added Chris.
“Our patients love the turnaround time and they know they can get quality lenses quickly at our location, shared Chris. “We can compete with the box stores & deliver a better quality lens from our certified opticians,” he concluded.
