The optical sector can be viewed in a number of ways…

…the preferred view is to split the sector between the “eye” care element (e.g. contact lens development, laser eye surgery, medical requirements, etc) and the products designed and manufactured for use with the eye (e.g. camera’s, encoder disks, motion control, positioning, measurement, etc). Both elements require high quality levels, traceability of manufacture, fast & reliable lead times, stress & burr free components and full confidentiality.
