Professor Vladimir Tsukruk Leads Team Instrumental in Mapping the Micromechanical Properties of Soft Polymer Contact Lenses

A team from Georgia Tech, led by Vladimir Tsukruk, have measured the mechanical properties of soft contact lenses under practical conditions using an atomic force microscope (AFM).

With more than 30 million contact lens wearers living in the US, making lenses more comfortable is a growing research issue, and defining their properties is key to understanding their performance. Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology have measured the complex mechanical properties of commercial soft contact lenses, and found that conventional measurement techniques are no longer fit for purpose.
