More than six months in the making, we take you behind the scenes at Laramy-K Optical to show you everything that goes into making uncut lenses, both conventional and freeform, from ordering all the way to shipping. We also take a look at AR (anti-reflective coating) application including spin-coated and dip-coated hard coat layers.
Now, just to be clear, this isn’t a glossy, “look at our fancy robots and white lab coats” type video, because, well, we don’t have those. Laramy-K is old-school. Our goal is to educate and show you the actual craft of lens making.
As our Lab Manager, John Larson likes to say, “Optics is craft and should be treated as such.” That’s exactly how we were able to produce the -21 cyl lens you’ll see in the video. The tool was literally handmade for that particular job. You just can’t do that with robots. When you choose a lab like Laramy-K, that’s what you can expect, people willing to go the extra mile for their craft. I hope that shows in the video, but more importantly, as with all our videos, I hope you enjoy it and learn a thing or two along the way.

Laramy-K Optical is a digital uncut and coating lab unlike any other. The only exclusively uncut lab in the country; we provide our customers with independent, high-end alternatives to corporate brands. Through craftsmanship, technology, and independent, innovative vendors like Younger, IOT, A&R, and Quantum Innovations we offer our customers the Integrity portfolio of freeform lenses and coatings. Made in the USA, the Integrity brand is not a generic house-brand, but is the absolute best available, designed to give the wearer that “wow!” experience.
In addition to the digital line, we still offer conventional surfacing, including glass. Maintaining traditional equipment gives our customers vastly more flexibility in their dispensing, particularly when it comes to more difficult prescriptions.
