Take a tour of the lab to see where your sight begins. 

To get the most accurate, comfortable and natural vision, we use Zeiss lenses. For more than 165 years, Zeiss has been a global leader in optical innovations to meet your ever-changing, personal vision needs.

The combination of your eyes, face shape and frame selection are distinct to you. Using precise measurements, The Zeiss Individual™ lenses that we use in our lab integrate how these three things work together. The result – improved visual acuity for clearer, sharper vision.

Advanced Technology for Superior Vision

Automated alloy-free blocking system

LBC Optics is the first lens lab in North America (and one of the first in the world) to use the Schneider CCB Modulo, an alloy-free blocking system for intelligent and eco-friendly lens manufacture.

We’ve embraced this innovative and fully-automated optical machinery to give Wisconsin:

  • Faster turnaround of precision optic lenses
  • Sustainable production with no toxic waste
  • A locally-owned, leading-edge lens lab keeping Wisconsin moving forward

Digital lens generator

The Schneider Modulo XT, is the best digital lens generator for freeform progressives.

It’s 20% more accurate and 30% faster than earlier equipment, and delivers unmatched quality for all curves and materials.

How individualized lenses are made

After your visit, we send your unique, detailed visual profile to our lens lab.

Your lenses start out resembling a hockey puck. Our team of technicians takes the information from your visit (prescription, frame selection, lens add-ons) and using state-of-the-art optical software, crafts precisely cut lenses to fit your frame.

All of our lenses are digitally surfaced. What does this mean for you? When we take the original hockey puck, grind it down and polish it, your lenses are surfaced to .001 of a diopter of your prescription.

Contact or visit the Wisconsin Vision nearest you for more information and recommendations on optical lenses and lens treatments.
