Medical Device Optics from Shanghai Optics

09 Jun 2022

Optics is playing a key role in nearly every modern diagnostic advance, and devices that rely on optics are extensively used for medical research, diagnostics and treatment. Shanghai Optics is proud to manufacture high quality optics for medical devices and applications, and we are able to work with your team to design and produce custom medical device optics to fit your specific needs.

Our optics are used in medical and clinical research laboratories worldwide, in medical diagnostic applications (including micro endoscopy, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and PCR instruments), and medical treatment applications such as robotic surgery, and laser based ophthalmology.

Challenges to Medical Optics Production


Medical optics are highly regulated, as reliably functioning is a basic requirement of a medical device. Shanghai Optics is ISO 13485 certified, which means our quality management system has demonstrated its ability to produce high quality medical optics and medical device assembly that consistently meet customer requirements as well as satisfying all regulatory requirements.

Our state-of-the-art metrology equipment allows us to ensure every medical optical component produced or assembled at our factory fully meets all relevant standards and will perform as expected in medical research, diagnostic or treatment applications.


At Shanghai Optics we work to ensure that each of our medical device optics are produced in a cost-efficient, budget sensitive manner. Extensive design and engineering experience combined with in-house manufacturing equipment allows us to achieve some of the highest benefit-cost ratios in the industry. Our design and engineering team, with more than 60 years of experience in medical device optics, is available to consult with you about the most cost effective manner to achieve your goals.


Development of medical treatment devices and medical research is often conducted under strict time constraints. Shanghai Optics specializes in quick turnaround on custom medical optics orders.

While optical design and manufacturing process for advanced medical devices and applications is complicated and involves many steps, our design and engineering team can work with you to create the custom design and manufacturing process for producing medical optics with high quality and in a short time, and help you accelerate the product development plans.


For making medical devices perform with high accuracy, optical components must be designed and manufactured to the highest standards, then assembled precisely.  Opto-mechanical design, material selections, and optical coatings must be chosen for increasing the medical device optical performance.  Our design engineers are able to work with you on the system performance analysis and design optimization, and our manufacturing team will ensure each and every medical optical component meets all of your requirements.
