Abstract

Compliance of plano lenses should be among the easiest of tasks for a laboratory. While we know of no defined or required acceptance rates for prescription lenses, a failure rate for a laboratory of 12.6 per cent, which includes a failure rate of 88 per cent in 2.8 mm thick refractive index = 1.53 hard coated lenses (n = 20) cannot be considered satisfactory and is a strong indication of a failure to check lenses before they leave the laboratory.
