More than a lens company. More than a device company. We are an outcomes company.

Ever since our inception in 2012, the mission has always been the same: to help independent eye care providers bring relief to their patients. In the beginning, we partnered with neurology clinics and began utilizing Neurolens technology on their most refractive, end-of-the-line patients. Within days we saw tremendous, life-changing results. Since then we have helped Independent Optometrists across North America bring relief to tens of thousands of patients.
