The peculiarities of the polyvinylpyrrolidone copolymers synthesis for contact lenses


Oleg Suberlyak and Volodymyr Skorokhoda

The research results of the hydrogels synthesis rules on the basis of 2-hydroxyethylmethacrylate-polyvinylpyrrolidone copolymers and effective ways of adjusting of their proper¬ties are given. Synthesized copolymers appeared to be effective materials for production of hydrophilic contact lenses.
