Takeover of Biolens activities

When Essilor decided to close Biolens they choose SwissLens to entrust the  fabrication of Lunelle Toric RX because of the SwissLens experience and knowledge with this type of lenses.

Since then, SwissLens is producing the Lunelle Toric RX without interruption as OEM.

July 1997

Creation of SwissLens

With the good results of LCM, the management decide to create the new SwissLens company with Philippe Kaeppli as the CEO.

The activity started in the new facilities in Prilly, near Lausanne.

The founders of SwissLens were Hervé de Malm, Pierre-André Cuénoud, Gerard Muller and CEO Philippe Kaeppeli.

1992 - 1997

Development & Research

Before SwissLens was founded, Hervé de Malm and Gerard Muller worked on the development of a fully automatic lathe with an oscillating diamond tool for contact lenses under a company called LCM (Lentille de Contact sur Mesure) near Place Saint-François in Lausanne. With this machine it should be possible for the first time to produce the patented dynamic stabilisation elements of a soft contact lens in one step like the Lunelle Toric RX.

With this new developed fabrication concept, LCM was selling their first soft contact lenses to customers in Switzerland.

Pierre-André Cuénoud left Biolens to join LCM.

before 1992

The beginning of a successful story

In the 70′ Gerard Muller founded a small production of contact lenses in a laboratory under the name Biolens in Lausanne.

In the 80′, Biolens was developing the design of the Lunelle Toric RX and was sold to the Essilor company.

In 1983, Pierre-André Cuénoud joined Biolens to lead the production Team.
