The purpose of this study was to determine if ceramic lap tools produce as high a quality of optical lenses as aluminum lap tools during the surfacing process in eye ware manufacturing, if ceramic lap tools are easier or harder to work with than aluminum lap tools, if ceramic lap tools last as long as aluminum lap tools, and if ceramic tolls are as cost effective as aluminum lap tools.
