The phenomenon of residual stress in optical lens injection molding affects the quality of optical devices, with the refractive errors that are caused by geometric errors being the most serious, followed by the reduced accuracy and function of optical components; it is very important to ensure that the lens geometry remains intact and that the refractive index is reduced. This paper uses a photoelastic stress compensation method for measurement verification along with fuzzy theory to reorganize

A mold flow simulation is used to analyze the molded optical components and determine the feasibility of evaluating the quality of the lens. Through the measurement of the refractive stress value of the optical components, the molding quality of the lens can be improved, and its force distribution effects can be investigated. Geometric analysis and shear stress affect the performance of optical components, and these errors may also cause irreparable problems during secondary processing. Therefore, it is crucial to reduce the residual stress of optical components. When the stress distribution is uniform and the internal melting pressure is reasonably configured, the product's shrinkage rate can be controlled; the method for determining the residual stress is the core theme of this research.
