Precilens, a French know-how in contact lenses for more than 40 years

Precilens : tailor-made visual innovation

Precilens was founded by Francis VINZIA, at Monttessuy Street, in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. In this district were crafted the C2 lenses, the first progressive contact lenses in the world. Since then, the laboratory has continued to innovate and its expertise in tailor-made contact lens design, particularly in orthokeratology and presbyopia, has acquired an international dimension, combining a unique know-how with a corporate culture that favors proximity and human relations.

Several commitments support this expansion:

  • major innovations leading to international patents.
  • the mastery of technology transfers enabling Precilens to export its know-how and to establish partnerships with other international manufacturers.
  • the coordination and management of Research & Development programs in collaboration with various French ophthalmologist partners, European and American contactologists, hospitals, as well as material manufacturers.

100% French tailor-made contact lenses

Thanks to its research advances and constant innovations in design conception, Precilens has invested primarily in nanotechnology and fully computerized high-tech production tools, thus remaining a pioneer in the field of presbyopia while developing in parallel a unique expertise in orthokeratology and myopia control.

This has enabled new technological advances and the design of ever more innovative geometries combining visual performance and simplicity. In addition, close collaboration with research centers and universities allows the laboratory to continuously deepen its research and knowledge on the visual needs of wearers, regardless of their age and ametropia.

The organisation of Precilens complies with the requirements of the European Directive 93/42 and ISO 13485. All products meet the requirements of the Public Health Code. Also, the laboratory is audited and certified by the G.MED (certification body in the medical and health field) and is a member of the organization EFCLIN (European Federation of the Contact Lens and IOL Industrie).
