Paper Abstract

A computer controlled production system has been developed and commissioned for the production of various types of contact lenses for use in vision correction in humans. Precision diamond point turning was chosen for this application due to its flexibility and potential to cope with a wide variety of lens designs, materials and variation in production batch size. This paper reviews the choice of diamond point turning for this production problem, the results achieved and the potential for future development.
