Younger Optics

Younger Optics is one of the world’s largest privately-held ophthalmic lens manufacturers. It is devoted to helping people see better. It all began over 65 years ago in the home garage of Irving Rips in Los Angles. Irving had a vision to create an invisible line bifocal lens that wouldn’t give away the wearer’s age with its tell-tale lines on the lens. This desire led Irving Rips to develop the world’s first ‘seamless bifocal’ optical lens which was launched in 1955. Younger Optics – so named because the new lenses would make the wearer look younger – was born.

Younger Optics went on to be awarded world’s best optical manufacturer in 1966, launched a NASA anti-fog lens cleaner in 1968, and released aspheric lenses and progressive lenses in the 1970s.

Today Younger Optics is a global leader in prescription polarized sunglass lenses with the NuPolar brand lenses.
