Our Company

Bringing innovation and vision to practice globally through principled people.

Labtician Ophthalmics started over 60 years ago when we developed the first solid silicone retinal implant.

60 Years & Still Growing

It has been 60 years since Labtician Ophthalmics, Inc. was credited with the development of the first solid silicone retinal implant by Dr. Louis Girard (Houston, Texas, U.S.A) in a presentation to the Mid-Southern Section Meeting of the Association for Research in Ophthalmology in 1959. Labtician is now the world leader in the manufacturing of solid silicone and closed cell sponge retinal implants with our partners in over 80 countries. Building on our base as a manufacturer of high quality retinal implants, Labtician has also chosen to manufacture additional high quality ophthalmic and oculoplastic product lines such as silicone oil, intravitreal injection kits and gold lid weights.
