  • Patent number: 5545366
    Abstract: An arrangement for molding a front or back polystyrene mold half which is used, with a second complementary back or front mold half, for subsequent molding of a soft contact lens such as a hydrogel soft contact lens. Each mold half defines a convex curved surface and a concave curved surface spaced therefrom, with one of the surfaces defining an optical quality curved surface for the soft contact lens. A heated molding machine introduces molten polystyrene through a hot runner system to a plurality of mold cavities, each of which defines an optical quality curved surface and also a second noncritical surface. The optical quality surface of the mold cavity is positioned further away from the heated hot runner side of the mold than the second surface, which allows faster cooling of the optical quality surface of the mold cavity. Each mold cavity has a first insert on the optical quality side of the mold cavity and a second insert on the second side.
