Contact Lens Inspection Equipment Market to Witness Robust Expansion throughout the Forecast 2017-2027

VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y. – Automated contact lens inspection systems which consists of suitable light source, camera and image processing algorithms, for contact lenses defect inspection are gaining traction in terms of market growth owing to its ability to review the contact lens at production line with higher accuracy. The newly introduced software programs coupled with automated contract lens inspection systems are providing an user friendly platform with higher test versatility. In addition, in-house programs developed to cater the specific requirements is anticipate to fuel the growth of customized lens inspection systems. The automatic contact lens inspection systems are mostly preferable used in soft contact lens inspections.

Ophthalmic product manufacturers have grown significantly from last few years in terms of research and development. Industrial inspection is a crucial part of manufacturing process for ophthalmic devices.  Contact lenses are produced by injecting monomer solution in to the mold and then separated from the mold after cured in the oven. Contact lenses shows number of manufacturing defects due to mechanical nature of separation form the mold and defects in molding process. Hence, the manufactured contract lens needs to be inspected for material safety, visual inspection for color, lens diameter, optical zone diameter, base curve radius, power, thickness, edge quality, performance testing before released in the market for sale. The inspection of all above parameters require lengthy time on production line environment.  As results, the ophthalmic product manufacturers have introduced an automated system which is used for contact lens inspection.
