The company began its journey as VISION RX LAB PVT. LTD. in the northern Indian city of Agra way back in 1959. The principal activities soon shifted to Kolkata where the first surfacing lab was set up. Over the years, GKB partnered with reputed European ophthalmic firms for technology, equipments, raw materials and consumables to boost production.

Today the company has now grown into a large infrastructural setup across India, with a fully dedicated international operations facility in Gurgaon. It also has international sales offices in USA, Canada and Dubai, to meet the growing demand for premium ophthalmic lens products in the international market.
