Optical Dynamics: 30+ Years of Innovation

You’ve chosen Optical Dynamics technology for superior lens quality and profitability, but you may not know that we’ve devoted more than thirty years to research and development that has moved the industry forward.

The company began in 1985 at the University of Louisville Polymer Chemistry Department. A research chemist had a vision to make a superior optical lens direct from liquid plastic to the finished Rx using the speed of radiation curing. Five years of meticulous research commitment led to our first in-office lens system released for sale in 1990.

As the technology took hold, ten additional years of development and the registration of over 100 additional worldwide patents led to the release of today’s Q-2100 Digital Lens System, a small tabletop unit scalable to almost any practice. All new product advancement including mold designs, lens materials and coatings, has been developed to grow and expand with this platform.

Our history of university affiliated research continued with the development of the in-office nanoCLEAR AR unit. Through a partnership with the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville our team of engineers and chemists took the latest nano particle technology available creating an anti-reflective coating system for the optical professional. This revolutionary product launched in 2005 continues to push the bounds of in-office lens production innovation, even today.

Optical Dynamics expanded in 2007 with launch of Vision Dynamics Laboratory. Our full service lab runs our proprietary products in an expanded range catering to the needs of Q-2100 owners and to other optical professionals who may not be ready for an in-office system but who want to benefit from our quality lens products at competitive prices. With a unique expertise in glass lens surfacing, our laboratory also caters to the fulfillment of glass jobs for optical labs around the country.

Product advancements in 2010 and 2011 included the development of both optical and non optical related products. Recent grants from the Department of Energy, National Science Foundation and Kentucky SBIR continue our pursuit of new materials, coatings and films as seen in the recent release of clearLIGHT PLUS, sunSMART, ultraSUN and nanoCLEAR AR V.

2012 through 2017 were more big years with the release of permaTINT pretinted  SFSV lens blanks, sunSMART SFSV lens blanks, colorMAG shooting lenses, sunSMART II grey & brown and ultraSUN II, with Vision Dynamics Laboratory named as the largest independent glass lens processor in the United States.

2018 saw the addition of two exciting new monomers to the product line. blueVIEW defense blue light lenses are sunglasses for your indoor world. amplifEYE color bust sun lenses are like HDR for for your eyes!

2019 looks to be another impressive year!


Build an Invested Team

Optometric Management, by Rebecca L. Johnson

  • Start with Vision: A good leader has a clear vision and the ability to communicate it to others in a way that they want to be a part of it.
  • Provide Job Descriptions: Most employees want to do a good job. Most often employees perform below our expectations because we have not properly communicated our expectations. Job description
  • Continue to Communicate: Role clarity is the first step in moving your team toward the same goal. In employee reviews and meetings, continue to emphasize the objectives of each employee and how his or her goals contribute to achieving the over-arching vision of the business to keep everyone on track.
  • Achieve Your Goals: Imaging setting a straight path to a destination, but every time you take 50 steps straight, you take one step to the right. Even though you are moving toward the destination, you will miss the mark. It is impossible for an organization to be successful when there isn’t clear alignment between its objectives and what employees spend time doing.

Digital Lens Technology Benefits Island Countries

Optica Select, in the Antilles, owned by Dr. Fredrich Davelaar, is an ophthalmology clinic with dispensary in the city of Curacao.  Purchasing a Q-2100 with CFL molds for their lab, they are a staunch supporter of the progressive designs and its benefit to their patients. They expect to add the nanoCLEAR AR unit to their practice in the coming months.

Other Q-2100 system users may be found on the islands of Puerto Rico, Guam, Saipan, and Barbados.

ultraSUN IIMany of Optical Dynamics lens products are well suited for warm tropical locations. The ultraSUN sunglass photochromic handles warm temperatures extremely well and is ideal for patients who spend a lot of time outdoors in sunny climates.  With our nanoCLEAR AR product, because of the way its processed, it is essentially impossible to induce craze in the AR stack. As a result, nanoCLEAR AR is damaged far less in boiling water and salt water tests than vacuum lenses, for a durable AR coating in coastal locations.
