Irving Rips


In 1955, Irving Rips created the first seamless bifocal. The lens Rips created was amazingly without any division lines. Based on the belief that his seamless bifocals made people look younger, Rips founded his own company called Younger Optics. Today Irving Rips' son, David, is President and CEO of Younger Optics. The business continues to grow and now offers a wide array of lenses.
