We’re Making


Welcome to the only Black-owned, woman-owned contact lens manufacturer in the world.


The acquisition of Hydrogel Vision Corporation is the start of very exciting things to come. In addition to having an outstanding contact lens, Extreme H2O, there is opportunity for growth and the potential of what it could mean for minority-owned businesses.

“It’s exciting to celebrate this milestone as we close out National Black Business Month.  We recognized the company’s potential and quickly saw the opportunity of how we could help train talent for jobs of tomorrow.”

CEO, Black Pearl Global Investments
