Meyer Optik Görlitz

German company founded in 1896 by optician Hugo Meyer

Meyer Optik Görlitz (or Goerlitz; German), originally Hugo Meyer & Co., was founded in 1896 by optician Hugo Meyer (May 21, 1863 - March 1, 1905) and businessman Heinrich Schätze. The company got off to a successful start with the development of the wide-angle Aristostigmat lens and the subsequent acquisition of Optical Institute Schulze and Billerbeck, the manufacturers of “Euryplan lenses”, as they were called at the time.
