The Opticote Story
Opticote is a full-service optical coatings lab with a long history of service and innovation – serving Ophthalmic Labs, ECPs, Photonics and Industrial/Commercial customers.
Quality and Delivery are touchstones for everything we do, driving development of key processes, best practices, and employee training. The goal is quality across every skill; from product handling to cleaning, coating, inspection and shipping.
Our consistent record of on-time delivery is achieved by consistently “getting things right” the first time and supporting the high expectations of our customers for meeting delivery schedules.
Many of our coating products are shipped same-day on orders received before 11am.
Our selection of semi-finished mirrored lenses can be shipped the same day for orders arriving before 4pm!
The Customer Service team is ready to provide additional support when needed.
We’ve been creating new technology since the early 1970s, beginning with color coating for eyeglass lenses.
In the 1980s, we developed coatings for the emerging cell phone industry, pioneered coatings on polymer lenses, and began providing sophisticated optical filters for industrial, military and aerospace applications.
From the 90s through today, we’ve continued finding innovative applications for our technologies, serving as a trusted partner to some of the most innovative companies on the planet.
