Hyperion Development, LLC. was formed in 2004 as a merger between Optical Product Development, Inc. of Lexington, MA (est. 1996) and Paragon Optics, Inc. of San Ramon, CA (est. 1994).

Russ Hudyma (Paragon) and Michael Thomas (OPD) merged their respective companies in 2004 after a 14+ year working relationship. This combination of complimentary skill sets created a company larger than the sum of its parts.

Both founding partners hail from the Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester and have been involved in the design and production of custom optical systems for over 20 years.

Key strategic manufacturing relationships have enabled Hyperion to move from a world class engineering service firm, into a fully capable source for rapid prototypes and OEM lens assemblies.

Hyperion is routinely involved in development programs with some of the worlds most established companies and we also help many developing start ups solve key optical problems that enable their success.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your team.
