Wettability and Surface Morphology Investigation of RGP Eye Contact Lens Irradiated by 193 nm Excimer Laser

Tayebeh Ariyafar, Ali Pourakbar Saffar, Peyman Tajalli, Habib Tajalli
In this work, Rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses based on Fluoro Silicone Acrylate, were irradiated by using 193 nm ArFexcimer laser, at 1 Hz pulse repetition rate with 75 mJ/pulse energy to improve surface wettability. We investigated the morphology of the ablated area by imaging the surface modification with Atomic force microscopy (AFM) with roughness analysis and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Characterization techniques were performed too via contact angle measurement in order to...
