J Keith Lomas, group CEO of United Kingdom-based contact lens company UltraVision CLPL, plans to step down in early 2017.

Lomas will remain on the company’s board as non-executive director and co-owner.

Lomas and John Clamp have in equal partnership grown the company, which started as a small specialist contact lens lab in Cambridge, since 1996, according to a press release.

Today the company sells contact lenses into more than 70 countries, and the UltraVision CLPL Group also supplies software and designs to major contact lens manufacturers globally.

According to the release: “Following the handover transition period, Clamp and UltraVision CLPL’s Executive Management team will take on these additional day-to-day responsibilities from early 2017.”

Lomas said he is “very proud of what we’ve achieved so far.”

“Our successes include life-changing benefits for many thousands of people with lenses such as KeraSoft and having our lens designs and software running in virtually all of the major U.S. labs plus in Europe, South America, Asia, Australasia, indeed all round the world,” he said. “Investing in our own cast-moulding facilities is proving fruitful and our university partnerships are also key, along with the truly advanced areas we work in such as putting electronics into contact lenses and intraocular lenses. We’ve got a fantastic pipeline of new products and exciting patents to build further on both directly and with partners.”
