Abstract

We demonstrate swept source optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of contact lenses (CLs) in a wet cell and comprehensive quantitative characterization of CLs from volumetric OCT datasets. The approach is based on a technique developed for lens autopositioning and autoleveling enabled by lateral capillary interactions between the wet cell wall and the lens floating on the liquid surface. The demonstrated OCT imaging has enhanced contrast due to the application of a scattering medium and it improves visualization of both CL interfaces and edges. We also present precise and accurate three-dimensional metrology of soft and rigid CLs based on the OCT data. The accuracy and precision of the extracted lens parameters are compared with the manufacturer’s specifications. The presented methodology facilitates industrial inspection methods of the CLs.
