Originally founded in 1930, Vision-Ease has become a recognized leader in manufacturing quality ophthalmic lenses. Vision-ease is headquartered in Bloomington, MN and specializes in designing, making, and distributing the ever-popular polycarbonate lenses commonly used in safety eyewear today. In addition to polycarbonate lenses, Vision-Ease also manufactures other opthalmic products including plastic and glass lenses, photochromic, polarized, anti-reflective, and scratch-resistant lens treatments.
Some of Vision-Ease's most notable products include:
Coppertone™ polarized lenses
Outlook® progressive lenses
Vision-Ease consistently strive's to produce highly innovative products. They leveraged their strong technology development platform and expertise in polycarbonate lenses to become a leader in high-end lens treatments such as polarized lenses. The company also invented a patented film technology for photochromic polycarbonate lenses, which darkens when they are exposed to ultraviolet rays and remains clear in other light. In November 2006, The Optical Laboratories Association awarded Vision-Ease their 2006 Award of Excellence for Best in Lens Materials honoring the company's polycarbonate photochromic lenses.
“With each new product, Vision-Ease Lens demonstrates a commitment to meet the wide range of customer needs,” - John Bator, Senior Product Manager,Vision-Ease.
