A Japanese lens company founded back in the 1940s, Hoya have been global manufacturers of optical, photographic and medical-related products. A specialised company working with lenses, they have gradually expanded to incorporate other related products such as cameras and medical tools. Hoya spectacle lenses have been around in the UK for over 30 years.
Hoya have worked with various lens departments including photographic filters for cameras, lasers, contact lenses and eyeglass lenses both plastic and glass. Hoya prides itself being one of the few leading manufacturers of photographic filters. In the medical and scientific industry, Hoya has produced some of the latest electro-optical components, often involving light detection and filters. They also manufacture intraocular lenses for cataract surgery.
In 2008, Hoya Corporation merged with Pentax Corporation, another Japanese optics company who were and still are world renowned for their cameras. Although Pentax were advanced with their camera technology, they were not limited to it and had invaluable experience and technology with medical tools such as endoscopes and sport optics such as binoculars and scopes used on rifles. By combining all their knowledge and expertise, Hoya strengthened their grip in the medical and optics industries, whilst keeping the Pentax brand name for their camera products.
Hoya has been producing top Hoya glasses lenses using the best quality lens materials available. In 2011, their new Eyvia 1.74 lens was awarded the prestigious iF award for combining outstanding optical qualities with lightweight and ultra-thin properties. Being international award winners in the optical world is such a fabulous honour to hold.
