HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate)는 친수성 안 의료용 소재로써 폭넓게 사용되고 있으며, 특히 소프트 콘택트렌즈 제조에 가장 많이 사용되는 재료중의 하나이다. 또한 산소투과율(Dk/t)은 콘택트렌즈 재료의 성능을 평가하기 위한 물리적 특성 중 매우 중요한 요소이다. 본 연구는 HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), MMA (methylmethacrylate), NVP (N-vinyl-pyrrolidone), 교차결합제인 EGDMA (ethylene glycol dimethacrylate)를사용하여 공중합 하였으며, 일반 콘택트렌즈와 칼라 콘택트렌즈를 제조하여 중심부와 주변부의 산소투과율을 polarographic method로 측정하였다. 실험 결과 polarographic method로 측정한 콘택트렌즈 주변부의 산소투과율 감소량은 40.77%에서 49.13%의 분포로 나타났으며, 칼라 콘택트렌즈는 염료에 기인된 영향으로 산소투과율의 감소량이 더 크게 측정되었다.

HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) is a hydrophilic material which is broadly used for ophthalmologic purposes and especially in the manufacture of soft contact lenses. Also, the oxygen transmissibility (Dk/t) is a very important physical characteristic in the evaluation of a material’s adequacy to be used to produce contact lenses. This study used HEMA (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), MMA (methylmethacrylate), NVP (Nvinyl-pyrrolidone), the cross-linker EGDMA (ethylene glycol dimethacrylate) for copolymerization, and measured the oxygen transmissibility of the central and peripheral areas of the manufactured general and color contact lenses using the polarographic method. The measurement showed that the decreased amount of oxygen transmissibility of the central and peripheral areas of the contact lenses measured using the polarographic method range between 40.77% and 49.13%, and the oxygen transmissibility of the color contact lens showed a larger decrease due to the effects of the coloring materials.
