4 Fundamental requirements for spectacle lenses
In addition to the requirements specified in this International Standard, uncut finished lenses shallcomply with the relevant parts ofISO 8980, and mounted lenses shall comply with ISO 21987.
Spectacle lenses shall be designed so that the overall risk associated with their use according to theconditions intended by the manufacturer, relative to the risk when the spectacle lenses are not used, is reduced to a level consistent with the materials used and compatible with the generally acknowledgedstate-of-the-art.
Lenses shall not be made from materials known to be physiologically incompatible or known to createallergic or toxic reactions among a significant proportion of wearers when the lenses are used asintended by the manufacturer.
When the lens is tested as described in 5.2, there shall be no continued combustion after withdrawal ofthe test rod.
4.4 Mechanical strength
Uncut spectacle lenses shall withstand the quasi-static loading type test for minimum robustnessdescribed in 5.3.
The requirement for minimum robustness shall be satisfied if the spectacle lens withstands theapplication ofa 22 mm diameter steel ball with a force of (100 + 2) N, when tested as described in 5.3.
This test shall be carried out immediately after conditioning at a temperature of (23 + 5) C
After this test, the following defects shall not be apparent:
a) Lens fracture.
A spectacle lens shall be considered to have fractured if it has cracked through its entire thickness intotwo or more pieces or if more than 5 mg of the lens material has become detached from the surface.
b) Lens deformation.
A spectacle lens shall be considered to have been deformed if a mark has appeared on the white paperunderneath the lens.
NOTEIf the spectacle lens is intended for use for industrial or other purposes where mechanical hazardsexist, a higher level of mechanical strength or robustness may be required. lf eye protection is required, thespecific requirements are given in the appropriate International Standard.
