There have been attempts to model the shrinkage of the element prior to the casting and create the proper mold accordingly. 49 Another method of hardening the liquid is to irradiate it with ultraviolet light. Certain casting materials respond quickly to this method. In fact, some materials that are used in UV-cure casting are also used as UV-cure adhesives. In (eyeglass) optician’s shops, it is becoming increasingly common for spectacle lenses to be cast using a UV-cure system. Prior to this, the shops often finished the lenses by putting the correct prescription on the rear surface of a precast lens blank.
The crowns are materials that Optical Plastics 19 have an Abbe number over about 50, and the flints are materials with Abbe numbers less than about 50. This naming convention allows for easy description of the configuration of a design. For example, a two-element system may be described as having a negative flint lens followed by a positive crown lens. In addition to being divided into crowns and flints, optical plastics are also divided into two groups based on their ability (or not) to be repeatedly heated and formed.
Different grades of a given material may have different service temperatures. For instance, several grades of the COC materials have lower service temperatures than shown, actually near or less than the value for polycarbonate.
