Brian Boddy

Founder and Principal

Brian Boddy was the first freeform retailer in the United States and wrote an article called “The Trouble with Click Fees" Lab Talk. Jobson publishing, in November 2010. This article shed light on the emerging freeform laboratory and private label digital progressive technology while also giving samples of how to calculate profitability. Since that time Brian and his team have spent years becoming experts in free form lens branding and production. Many white label progressives exist in the market, and we can help you decide on what’s best for your lab or office. Having been in hundreds of labs around the world we have ample experience on which machines and processes work in the different optical environments. We help in retail environments, in house edging, remote tracing, surface, fully automated labs and data communication from all O’s. 

Our unbiased opinion regarding lens materials, hard coatings, AR coatings, advanced CNC edging processes, machine data communications, free form calculation programs, lab design, lab staff training, process development, lean manufacturing processes, and all lab operations is invaluable. Call us to find out why!
