Who we are

Contamac is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of contact (CL) and intraocular (IOL) lens materials, and a leading innovator in the development of specialist polymers and biocompatible materials for medical applications. We don’t make contact lenses – our clients do, from our materials.

Our 35,000sq ft (3,250m2) headquarters in Saffron Walden, England – just outside the university city of Cambridge – features an ISO7 (Class 10,000) clean room and state-of-the-art manufacturing, research and laboratory facilities. They allow us to produce bespoke ocular formulations to clients’ own specifications and to collaborate with the wider scientific community to create new biocompatible materials and applications.

In the three decades since it was founded Contamac has witnessed the introduction of ever-more stringent safeguarding controls, and so has developed systems and protocols to ensure compliance with worldwide regulatory requirements. Increasingly, clients turn to us for help in obtaining necessary product approvals, whether it be CE Marking or 510K submissions. Contamac is synonymous with the highest quality standards. We are ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 accredited, and two-time recipients of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

At Contamac we pride ourselves in being an international company in every sense. Our sales and marketing team is fluent in nearly a dozen languages and speaks regularly with clients in almost every world time zone. Having offices in the UK, US and China, and distributors around the world, allows us to be truly global, locally.
