Revision Awarded Contract to Supply Prescription Carriers to U.S. Troops

Essex Junction, Vermont (September 30, 2021) – Revision Military has been awarded a contract with the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to supply Universal Prescription Lens Carriers (UPLC) over the next five years.  The contract, issued by DLA Troop Support, has an estimated value of up to $37.5 million, began on September 17, 2021 and is for one three-year base period and two one-year option periods. Revision has been the incumbent supplier of the UPLC to DLA since 2013, when the U.S. Army moved to a single prescription carrier solution for all Rx-capable eyewear on the Authorized Protective Eyewear List (APEL).  The customizable UPLC allows for an individual prescription to be filled into the carrier by an optometrist, and the carrier fits securely behind the standard lens of their ballistic eyewear.

“Over the past 8 years, Revision has delivered thousands of UPLCs to DLA which have been issued widely across the U.S. military branches,” said Revision CEO Amy Coyne. “Revision recognizes the unique challenges for an end-user that requires vision correction and provides a universal vision correction solution that can be used across multiple styles and brands of protective eyewear without compromising end user protection.”
