mould

Any fungus that forms multicellular, filamentous colonies. Most moulds are harmless. Some, such as the common mould Penicillium notatum , secrete useful antibiotics, but some can cause allergic disease, such as FARMER'S LUNG, cork worker's lung, cheesewasher's lung and malt worker's lung.

mould

the growth of a number of different fungi which produces discoloration and alteration to the surface on which it grows. For example, See MILDEW (3).

impression, eye

A negative form or replica of the anterior part of the eye. A substance with rapid gelling properties is held in contact with the eye until gelled. This impression (or mould) is then used in the preparation of a positive model called a cast (or casting) of the anterior part of the eye: it is made by filling the impression with a material containing a plaster of Paris base which hardens to artificial stone. Using this cast a shell of a scleral contact lens is produced with optimum shape of the back surface. Syn. impression; impression moulding; mould; ocular impression.
