The paper reviews the design of an instrument designed to detect and map internal defects found in PMMA plastic. The material is used to manufacture intraocular lenses and must be free of defects larger than about 20 micrometers for a variety of safety, manufacturing and cosmetic reasons. The instrument detects scatter from a diode with a CCD array camera to map defect location. This information is used to avoid manufacturing lenses that will eventually be rejected.
