  Greenlight Optics was established in 2009 and builds on the legacy of US Precision Lens (USPL), a Cincinnati company that grew from making watch crystals to becoming a world lead in projection lenses and plastic optics. The majority of Greenlight Optics employees worked together at US Precision Lens, which later was named Corning Precision Lens and 3M Precision Optics. Here, we developed first-hand knowledge and experience around design, development and manufacturing of cost-competitive precision optical systems. In addition to making projection lenses and plastic optics, the Greenlight team has developed a variety of integrated optical systems - including medical imaging devices, LED illumination modules, optical sensors, fiberoptic couplers, near-to-eye displays, and projectors.

While with 3M Precision Optics, the founders of Greenlight Optics developed the pico projector technology that won the 2008 Popular Science “Best of What’s New” and the national Edison Gold Award for Technology Innovation. At USPL, we also developed an appreciation for, and now strive to create, a culture marked by respect for the individual and putting customers first.
Greenlight Optics is an optical systems engineering and manufacturing company specializing in projection displays, LED and laser illumination, imaging systems, plastic optics, and the integration of optics with electrical and mechanical systems.

The Greenlight Optics team brings a combined 250+ years of experience designing, developing, and manufacturing optical systems for consumer and professional markets.
