About Luxexcel

Luxexcel is the pioneer of 3D printed prescription lenses world-wide. Founded in 2009, when the world thought 3D printing of lenses was impossible. Today, Luxexcel partners with high-tech and ophthalmic leaders.

Luxexcel enables partners to 3D print prescription lenses in volume, create better lenses and integrate smart technology in lenses.
Luxexcel owns the key patents to enable 3D printing of lenses, as well as many others. The Luxexcel VisionPlatform™ includes a 3D printer, software, printing processes, and proprietary lens printing material which combined create high-quality lenses.

Partners not only benefit from Luxexcel’s proprietary technology, but also utilize its wealth of experience in 3D printing, optics, and material knowledge, to 3D print regular and complex lenses, lenses with active features, and smart glasses.

Luxexcel is headquartered in Eindhoven, The Netherlands with R&D and operations located in Turnhout, Belgium. Sales and service teams also operate from its office in Alpharetta GA, USA.
