PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate)
Lagado’s PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) contact lens blanks are made from ultra-pure methyl methacrylate monomer. The polymer is highly crosslinked for stability, solvent resistance and ease of machining. Half-inch precision ground blanks are available in clear and Glasflex, Visimax and Nissel matching shades: #1, #2, #3 and medium shades of blue, green, gray, and brown; violet, pink and yellow. Many other colors are in stock – call for availability. PMMA blanks are available in 12.7mm and 17.0mm diameters. The 17.0mm blank is machined with a 1/2" shoulder for blocking.
