LKC was founded in 1975 by Jerome Leight, Sigmund Krassowsky, and Frank Chen; hence, the initials LKC. Its first device was a telemetry in-hospital monitoring system for cardiac patients. In early 1976, LKC was introduced as a new device for the diagnosis of the retina and optic nerve disease. This was the infancy of the Visual Electrodiagnostic Testing System. Since 1976, LKC Technologies, Inc. (LKC) established itself as the industry leader in the manufacture of visual electrophysiology products. For over 40 years, LKC has been pushing ERG and VEP diagnostic technologies forward. These functional exams are easy to use and interpret for medical, research, and veterinary applications alike. Diagnose earlier & manage with confidence.
LKC Technologies develops, designs, manufactures, and sells medical devices for Ophthalmic use. Today there are LKC systems installed in most major eye centers in the United States and eye centers in over 50 countries around the world.
