Dr. Richard A. Griffin, Founder

It takes someone with vision to see the correlation between one area of science and another. Applying creative and differentiated design approaches to solve age-old problems for patients – that’s what Dr. Richard A. Griffin – an optometrist, optical engineer, and aerospace engineer – envisioned.

A research grant helped Dr. Griffin develop his design theories, which were the genesis of our new product, NaturalVue® (etafilcon A) Multifocal 1 Day Contact Lenses. Achieving 14 patents worldwide with an additional 8 pending and finding bold, new solutions in vision care, VTI has been redefining vision since its founding in 2008.
