Basically, CCCES Glasses earned an 80% acceptance rating from the evaluators and 85% said they would recommend CCCES Glasses to their colleagues. The testing also confirmed that the commonly used Cavi-wipes, containing isoproyl alcohol, found in most dental offices could be used as a disinfectant with no damage to the scratch resistant coating. However, the ethanol alcohol in Lysol would remove the coating and should not be used on the glasses especially in high concentrations.. As of yet, glutaraldehydes used in cold sterile have not been tested; but most likely could be used as a sterilization method. For our own testing, the brand Optim Wipes with hydrogen peroxide was repeatedly used for 8 months with no adverse effects on the coating. We are extremely appreciative of everyone who contributed to the testing. We intend to use this information to improve CCCES Glasses to be even a better solution in not only protecting your patients with effective safety, but also by making your work load less complicated.
The progress continues...please note the material description below. The knowledge and expertise of Stephen Chen of Arclite Optics has made this simple idea of tweeking regular glasses to the reality of an effective and safe product for CCCES Glasses. An order has been placed that should be fulfilled by the first of August. It will include a slightly darker copper colored lens, a gray lens, a light blue lens, and a clear lens. (Of course, our hope for the nitrous nose fitting glasses is still in our future plans.) This is in response to the requests we have received. Please continue to send us feedback as we strive to provide the best solution for the needs of your patients.
The CCCES protective eyewear gasket seal is molded from flexible PVC material. Flexible PVC is commonly used in the Medical Device industry for its excellent durability, chemical resistance, weather-ability, and low maintenance. PVC is easily sterilized and holds up to repeated use with excellent resistance to scratching, tearing, cleaning fluids and permanent deformation and discoloration under normal use. The biocompatibility of PVC is characterized as high.
We did make it to the UDA convention with the Cadre (meaning framework) our first pair of safety glasses for our dental patients. We appreciate everyone who stopped by our booth and those who even bought a pair of glasses. We hope to be able to meet your needs and provide the best fit, function, and a little fashion to supply this important safety for your patients. Thanks for your interest and support!!
Assembly of the glasses and preparations 'for sale' are completed. The first promotion of a medium-large adult size in shades of copper and blue are available. Please visit our Store to place an order. (As you put CCCES glasses to the test, your comments will be greatly appreciated so that we can make adjustments on the next molds to create the best possible solution to provide your patients with the ultimate protection in safety glasses.)
|4th and final prototype|
After endless attempts to contact large manufacturing companies of safety glasses, and even sunglasses, it became evident that a different avenue would need to be taken. Consequently, Gary Murdock of Technology Design provided insights to plastic injection fabrication. His confidence that this was a workable project was very reassuring.
