Lyric Optical, dba Super Optical, was founded in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1923. Beginning as a wholesale manufacturer of prescription lenses and frames for optometrists and opticians, they later adapted to the changing industry by providing optical equipment and supplies.
Developments in lens surfacing led to many optometrists and opticians losing their patients due to their inability to compete with new companies offering 'one hour' service for eyewear. As a result, Super Optical introduced the revolutionary FastGrind modified surfacing system, which allows the independent optometrist or optician to produce prescription lenses in-office without the large investment in equipment, space, and skilled labor that is required with traditional surfacing methods.
Super Optical is one of the most well established names in the optical industry. Their extensive experience and ingenuity allow for constant upgrading of FastGrind to meet the demands of the market, as well as, keeping our customer's current with frequent software updates. Continually providing the latest technological advancements ensures that we will provide the same excellent service that our customers have come to expect. This explains why FastGrind systems are being utilized in over 50 countries and approved by the US Military.
As the optical industry continues to change we strive to maintain our commitment in looking out for the independent eyecare professionals, as we have done for over 90 years.
