Our History

Metro Optics is a leading manufacturer for custom contact lens, serving eye care professionals throughout the Unites States.  Our products span from soft to gas permeable contact lens, helping satisfy even the most challenging of lens fits.

Founded in 1973, by Jim Webb in Dallas, Texas, Metro Optics was built on providing unsurpassed product quality and supreme customer service.  The company grew rapidly to soon include five locations plus a soft contact lens division in just a few short years.

With ongoing research and development, we are able to offer the market’s most sophisticated lens designs and innovative fitting systems.  Our manufacturing equipment and employee techniques are some of the most effective and advanced throughout the world today.

Metro Optics ensures that the company carries on those founding principles every day by not only the Webb family but also their extended family of associates at Metro Optics.

Our mission at Metro Optics is not only to provide eye care professionals with contact lens products and services that enhance their practices but also the lives of their patients.
