The possibilities to develop an injectable hydrogel lens were investigated. Aqueous solutions of reactive polymers in combination with a water-soluble blue light photoinitiator were transformed into hydrogels by irradiation with blue light. Poly(ethylene glycol) diacrylates (PEGDA) with low molecular weights and an acrylate modified copolymer of(More)
In this study it was investigated whether hydrogels could be used for an accommodating lens. The requirements of such a hydrogels are a low modulus, high refractive index, transparency, and strength. Since conventional hydrogels do not possess this combination of properties, a novel preparation method and new polymers are introduced. As starting materials(More)
Three vinyl-functionalized phosphine oxide photoinitiating monomers have been synthesized: 4-vinylbenzoyldiphenylphosphine oxide (VBPO), 2,6-dimethyl-4-vinylbenzoyldiphenylphosphine oxide (DMVBPO), and 2,4,6-trimethylbenzoylphenyl-4-vinylphenylphosphine oxide (TMBVPO). VBPO was copolymerized with vinylpyrrolidone or vinyl acetate (PPI-1a) and(More)
