Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods for storing, locating, identifying and coating eyeglass lens mold members for use in the production of eyeglass lenses are disclosed. An embodiment includes storing eyeglass lens mold members in a storage array. A plurality of indicators may be coupled to the storage array and associated with storage locations. A controller may be configured to select mold members, and to identify the locations of the mold members. A user may input mold member identifying information. The controller may activate indicators associated with determined storage location. A mold reader may be used to input the mold member identifying information. The mold reader may detect a light pattern formed by illumination of the identifying information and determine the identity of the mold member based on the light pattern. Additional embodiments relate to separating a cast lens from a lens mold. Such embodiments may include a clamping mechanism for elastically deforming the lens mold. The lens mold and lens may then be separated by applying a separating force.
