Welcome to

Interstate Lab Group

The Interstate Lab Group is a full-service wholesale laboratory with locations in Ontario, Ohio and Indianapolis, IN.  Both labs utilize fully-digital production with advanced finishing capabilities and anti-reflection, providing the best coatings including Crizal Sapphire 360 UV.

Interstate Optical was founded in 1977 by entrepreneur Raymond Art. With roots as an optical sales rep, having personally experienced the daily needs of his customers, Ray’s goal was to start a laboratory that put quality first and was passionate about serving the needs of its customers.

In 2008, Interstate partnered with Essilor to be able to provide their advanced technology and products, while maintaining their family business ownership and culture. In 2011, Indiana-based lab, GK Optical, merged with Interstate, and in 2018, another Indiana-based laboratory, LensTech Optical was added, forming the Interstate Lab Group. Today, Interstate continues to operate with these same principles, under the guidance of Ray’s sons John and Rob Art, and grandson and namesake Raymond Art.  

We welcome the opportunity to serve you!
