AbstractZnO nanoparticles and vinyl pyridine were added to the mixture of MMA (methyl methacrylate), HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) and NVP (N-vinylpyrrolidone) in a mould at various concentrations. Cross-linker EGDMA(ethyleneglycoldimethacrylate) and AIBN (azobisisobutyronitrile) initiator were finally added to the mixture and thenheated at 80 o C for 60 min to prepare high-performance hydrogel ophthalmic lens. The physical properties of the hydrogelophthalmic material were investigated by… CONTINUE READING
