The past 20 years have seen many changes in the contact lens industry; the introduction of monthly and daily disposable lenses, advancement in materials such as silicone hydrogel and more recently, a fully lathe-able SiH material. Another change over the last 20 years is the relationship between contact lens manufacturer UltraVision CLPL and the German distributor Bach Optic, as it's grown solidly from a start-up relationship to a major one.
Bach Optic started distributing UltraVision contact lenses 20 years ago and with UltraVision continuing to innovate and introduce more products a strong partnership developed and a diversity of products is now available to German eye practices.
Bach's CEO, Jürgen Schofeld and Karin Pintore, Specialist Lens Sales Advisor, visited UltraVision's head office last week where J Keith Lomas, UltraVision's CEO, presented them with a trophy to commemorate the 20 year partnership.
J Keith Lomas said, 'It is fantastic that our distributors are so loyal to the company and our products that year on year they support our business and welcome new contact lens designs our R&D team bring to the market. It is with this support that we are able to constantly move forward with R&D, benefitting our customers and, importantly, their patients.'
Jürgen commented, 'The team at Bach Optic and myself send many thanks for the 20 year trophy. We are all delighted and look forward to the next 20 years and to a powerful common business'.
