To describe, step by step, basic instructions on polishing andfinishing rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses.
Using a modification unit, trained people may appropriately polish surfaces of RGP contact lenses, modify their edges, diameter, peripheral curves and thickness, and change their optical power.
These procedures may improve the comfort and the adaptation conditions patients have, either restoring the quality of damaged lenses or increasing their lifetime.
