Lens Processing and Technology Division

Lens Processing and Technology Division

The Lens Processing & Technology (LPT) Division of The Vision Council, comprised of domestic and international companies providing practical technical solutions for every lens and frame manufacturing need, is responsible for the monitoring of existing industry standards, establishing new standards based on industry change, and creating industry-accepted compliance procedures. As the ophthalmic industry's technology partner, members of the LPT Division make up the largest optical equipment association in the world.

A dedicated LPT Division Liaison, Paul Wade, answers questions, responds to concerns, and provides direction to receive professional answers to industry issues.

LPT Technical Committees

The LPT Division forms standing committees and ad hoc task forces of volunteer experts to address technical issues in response to member needs. The groups routinely meet, often in conjunction with the International Vision Expo trade shows, to solve shared technical problems that affect our industry. Learn more about the technical committees operating under the Lens Processing & Technology Division.

LPT Division Marketing Campaign

After extensive discussions with representatives from LPT Division member companies, The Vision Council developed and launched a new industry-focused campaign designed to drive eyecare providers, manufacturers, optical labs and the industry at large to contact LPT Division member companies and visit exhibiting members at Vision Expos East and West, positioning members as the go-to experts for updating outdated lens processing technologies. The campaign encourages these audiences to invest in the latest lens processing software and equipment to make an exponential difference in their bottom line, identifying cost and time savings while preparing their business for the future of the eyewear industry. Later in the year, the campaign will also direct these audiences to take advantage of year-end tax incentives on lens processing equipment. Click here to learn more.
