Opthalmic Technicians Enthusiastic about nanoCLEAR AR

The team from Advanced EyeCare are avid users of the Q-2100 echnology. With two locations the doctor purchased the Q-2100 Digital Lens System and nanoCLEAR AR unit for his business in 2005.

The primary operator of the equipment proudly wears the lenses she made with the system. She has been running the system for a few years and in her words, “it’s the bomb!” When asked about the nanoCLEAR AR, the team shared their success rate with the product. “We have used some of the biggest AR names on the market and this is just as good if not better than the competition.”

As mentioned on the company website, they have a full in-house lab and full dispensary to provide control over quality of products and quick turn around time. The team at Advanced EyeCare is happy to have the technology on-site for improved optics, lens quality and delivery speed.

I Broke a Mold During Lens Production

The Q-2100 Lens system utilizes digital free form crown glass molds during the lens production process.  There is an infrequent possibility that a mold may break during production. Use the following tips to diagnose the reason.

Mold Breakage During the Demolding Process

Possible Cause #1: Mold was directly placed into the soaking solution before one mold was separated from the mold assembly and while still hot. This can cause thermal shock to the mold.

Solution: Demold one of the molds from the mold assembly prior to placing in the Q-Soak solution

Possible Cause #2: Improper technique when using the demolding tool

Solution: The operator needs to pry (not twist) the molds apart with the proper Optical Dynamics demolding tool. If the operator twists the demolding tool the corners of the tool may have stressed the mold to break or chip.

Mold Breakage Inside the Post Cure Chamber

Possible Cause: The mold assembly may not have been processed in a timely manner.

Solution: Ensure that the mold assembly is immediately placed into the Post Cure chamber after the initial does of light in the Main Chamber.
