Acuity Polymers, Inc. is a vision care company dedicated to bringing to market exceptional lathe-able materials for use by specialty contact lens laboratories around the world.
Founded in early 2016 by industry veterans Dan Bell, Jim Bonafini, and Jonathan Jacobson, Acuity Polymers was created to provide laboratories with a trusted and reliable source for its critical raw materials, at fair prices and dedicated to never vertically integrating to produce finished lenses.
