ZEISS Vision Care is a part of the larger ZEISS Group, which is a German-owned company. The company dates back to 1946 when Carl Zeiss opened his workshop for optical instruments and precision mechanics in Jena, Germany. Focusing on microscope production, he soon supplied his products not just for the regional markets but also around the world.

With ZEISS Medical Technology, the company covers the whole spectrum of eye healthcare needs. In addition to making corrective lenses, ZEISS also produces technology used by opticians to test, diagnose, and treat eye health issues. All Canadian orders for clear single vision and progressive lenses are made, manufactured, and fulfilled out of either the North York (primarily) or Montreal facilities.
