Abstract: The diffusion coefficient D, gas solubility k of material and the thickness of lens t were used to evaluate the oxygen permeability Dk/t of contact lenses (CLs). However, the nominal value Dk/t is usually not consistent with the actual oxygen permeability of wearing CL. As the oxygen travel through the hydrogel, it need to be carried by water molecules in the lens material; thus, the higher the water content (WC) of the material, the higher the Dk/t value. In order to obtain the WC and Dk/t of wearing CL, we create a testing platform to simulate the wearing status of CL. When the light traveled through the lens, we found that the attenuation in green light is smoother than other wavelengths. Moreover, the WC is higher, its dewatering rate at room temperature is lower, and the light attenuation is relatively smaller. Comparing with the other CL of similar WC, the Dk/t of CL is higher if it has higher dehydration. In the study, we evaluated the WC and Dk/t of hydrogel CL based on the li ght attenuation in eight minutes. The attenuation degree of light after traveling through the CL can be used to estimate the Dk/t of hydrogel CL. (More)
