Engineering Services

Omega Optical’s engineering services are founded on years of technical experience, proprietary software, and custom modified optical measurement instruments. Our services, offered free of charge, are intended to complement your optical instrument design and development projects. Involving us in the early stages of the conception of your idea is important in order to maximize the design process, and to minimize the projects overall costs.

Our goal is to play a collaborative role in your projects within the Life Sciences, Industrial, Commercial, Astronomy, Defense and Aerospace markets.
