Welcome to

Interstate Lab Group

The Interstate Lab Group is a full-service production laboratory with locations in Ontario, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana.  Both labs utilize fully-digital production with advanced finishing capabilities and anti-reflection labs.

Interstate Optical was founded in 1977 by entrepreneur Raymond Art Sr. 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 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.  Now operating simply as Interstate Ohio and Interstate Indy, Interstate continues to operate with the same founding principles, under the guidance of Ray’s sons John and Rob Art, and grandson and namesake Raymond Art.  

Our goal is to prove to you that the Interstate Lab Group is your best supporting partner to help drive your success. 

Thank you for that opportunity!
