L.P.O. quickly gained popularity among eye care professionals, and became one of the top distributors in the USA. Manufacturers appreciate the knowledgeable and experienced sales representatives, and offices can count on L.P.O. not only for new purchases, but expert advice with office planning, maintenance, repair, and new technology.

In 2013, L.P.O. was acquired by Luneau Technology, one of the oldest, and most recognizable ophthalmic distributors in Europe to this day. With this acquisition, came the opportunity for L.P.O. to broaden their product portfolio offerings, and for Luneau to bring the Visionix name brand into the US market.

Latham & Phillips Ophthalmic continues to provide exceptional products, quality, and service based on the founding principles this company was built upon. Maintaining our client’s trust and relationship with is our top priority.
