About Us


Visser Contact Lenses is an optical company which was founded by Mr and Mrs Visser in 1977. It started out as a practice in their home, and has since developed into a company with 25 branches all over the country. Since its foundation, Visser Contact Lenses has specialized in VS scleral lens fitting. The VS scleral lens was designed by Mr Visser Sr. and developed further by his daughter, Esther-Simone Visser.

Thesis on scleral lenses

In 2005, son Rients Visser and daughter Esther-Simone Visser took over the practice. Esther-Simone Visser also works as an optometrist at Visser Contactlenzen and recently completed her PhD with a study on scleral lenses. Her doctoral research led to the introduction of an entirely new scleral lens design, which provides new options for patients who have had a cornea transplant, for example.
