About Us

With over 40 years of lens manufacturing experience, Caledonian Optical is one of a select few independent laboratories that have harnessed the full capabilities of freeform technology enabling us to manufacture a portfolio of the latest high definition digital prescription lenses.

Established in 1976, Caledonian Optical provides state of the art surfacing and glazing services to a range of opticians throughout the UK and Ireland.

In 2015, our laboratory completed a major refurbishment with a second line of digital freeform surfacing equipment added to allow for increased efficiency. We also invested in our own in-house AR coating facility to provide quicker turnaround times.

During 2015 we also introduced ARC - the most advanced varifocal lens - to our portfolio. Since launching the new lens, we have grown to become one of the largest ARC manufacturers in Europe.

Caledonian Optical was awarded a Made in Britain accreditation in 2016.

Manufacturing and Safety Standards

The Caledonian Optical laboratory is BSI registered and operates a quality management system which complies with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001: 2000.
