Over 20 years manufacturing wellness
We started over 20 years ago as a small optical laboratory producing plastic lenses.
Today, we are an international manufacturer of lenses, with a full team of Research & Development, manufacturing and processing.
Augen was constituted in the eighties in order to bring the convenience of optical resin lenses to the Mexican market, which at the time was made up almost entirely of mineral glass lenses, using precision and technology previously unavailable in the market.
Research and development
While Augen Opticos expanded its network of laboratories across the major metropolitan areas of Mexico, the company added the component of research and development, to continue on its path towards invention.
In 1991, Augen developed a 3-axis generator for creating molds for internal demand, and immediately recognized the opportunity to produce glass molds for other manufacturers. Augen has been manufacturing glass molds for the top contenders in the US market for over 15 years.
The new millennium
The headquarters, located in Ensenada, house the corporate offices, the department of research and development, as well as the processing and manufacturing facilities.
Working from a solid base
More than 25 years after its inception, Augen Opticos has transformed from a small laboratory to a complex lens manufacturing company, laying a solid foundation for future growth and evolving on par with the industry and the optical market.
