The Partnership

Dyoptr partnered with Quadoa to provide genuine value to optical designers in a market space that hasn’t seen significant innovation in decades. Many people in the optics industry have wondered why there hasn’t been a serious new competitor in the market for a long time. Quadoa’s paradigm is powerful and intuitive, the UI is best in class, and the price is considerably lower than most competitors.

The Name

Dyoptr is an intentional misspelling of the unit of optical power: diopter or dioptre (depending on which side of the Atlantic Ocean you’re from). It is pronounced the same.
