Over 50 years ago, Dr. David Volk pioneered a new type of lens for eye glasses, providing better vision correction than the spheric lenses commonly available at the time. His aspheric design was refined and applied to diagnostic lenses, creating the full line of examination and surgical lenses the company offers today.

As eye medicine has evolved, Volk's product development has kept pace. Working alongside doctors, the company has innovated new products for the latest treatment techniques and improved patient outcomes. In addition to lenses, the company offers digital imaging devices, surgical viewing systems and accessories.

The head office is in Mentor, Ohio with representatives and distributors around the world.

Volk operates within the Halma Medical sector.
