Dietz Lab

By Christie Walker

Ed Dietz, III’s grandfather started the family business in 1933 and was joined by his son, Ed Dietz, Jr. in the 50’s. This small optical laboratory in Fort Worth, Texas, runs between 65 and 80 jobs per day and is owned by the mother and son team of Barbara and Ed Dietz, III. One of the first labs in the U.S. to become a Varilux lab and one of the first to process polycarbonate, the Dietz family has been a part of the optical industry for 78 years.
