Clement Clarke Centenary Movie Now Available Online

20th April 2017 – HS-UK is delighted to announce its commemorative movie, celebrating 100 years of Clement Clarke Limited, is now available online.

The 30-minute ‘Clement Clarke Centenary Movie, 1917-2017 – the First 100 Years’, can be viewed here either in full or in smaller bite-sized chapters.

This year marks the centenary of Clement Clarke Limited and throughout 2017, Haag-Streit UK, along with sister companies; Clement Clarke International, John Weiss & Sons and Clement Clarke Holdings, will be celebrating the company’s history.

The movie commences with the company’s humble beginnings in 1917, when Clement Clarke Dispensing Opticians was formed. It then sees the company begin a successful collaboration with Edgar Fincham to produce the first British slit lamp and the Fincham Ophthalmoscope. Witness the company expand its spectacle frame-making business by setting up its first Eye Clinic in the 1920’s and discover how this aided the conception of the National Eye Service and influenced NHS ophthalmic services we know today.

Celebrate the launch of the revolutionary new Synoptophore and learn about its use in the orthoptic testing of RAF servicemen and how this impacted the Battle of Britain, and learn why Clement Clarke Limited diversified into artificial eye production, facial prosthetic reconstruction and the manufacture of sight safety flying goggles during the war years.

Find out about the company’s entry into the respiratory market and the formation of Clement Clarke International, its purchase by Haag-Streit AG and the sale of its Optician stores to Boots PLC.

As we move through 100 years of history, our journey celebrates the design and development of many other products still used in modern practice, for example, the Perkins hand-held tonometer, BA 904 portable slit lamp and Tonosafe disposable prisms. Finally, discover the cutting-edge technology the company employs today.

Sharon Mills, HS-UK Marketing Manager, said, “Reaching this exciting milestone is such a wonderful achievement. We’re very proud to begin our year of celebrations with the release of this special movie that celebrates the long and varied history of Clement Clarke Limited. We hope you enjoy watching the movie as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
