KINGA JEZ, MARCIN NABIALEK, KONRAD GRUSZKA1, MICHAL DEKA, SLAWOMIR LETKIEWICZ, BARTLOMIEJ JEZ LIGHT TRANSMITTANCE BY ORGANIC EYEGLASS LENSES ACCORDING TO THEIR CLASS The research concerns the transmission of electromagnetic waves with a wavelength corresponding to the visible part of the spectrum and part of the ultraviolet and infrared radiation range. Light transmittance through ocular lenses was tested using a UV-Vis spectrophotometer for the wavelength range 250-850 nm. Obtained results encourage reflection on the quality of the spectacle lenses produced. The obtained results do not confirm the assurances of producers about the increase in light transmittance in the range of wavelengths corresponding to the highest sensitivity of the human eye. In addition, lenses having UV protection coatings do not perform their function in a proper way. Eyeglass lenses of various classes were tested, equipped with various refining coatings. The effect of the number of coatings on the transmission of light through the lenses was not observed. Conducting and publishing studies such as those presented in this work may have a significant impact on the improvement of the quality of manufactured eyeglass lenses.
