Where We Came From

Sunoptic Technologies® was originally established in 1978 when Joseph Cuda opened CUDA Products®, LLC, a manufacturing company using fiberoptic technology to produce novelty items and some medical products.

Over the years, the company transitioned to exclusively manufacturing products for the medical industry. After much success, Cuda Products was acquired by Chris Black in 1999.

Under new ownership, significant investments were made in the professional management staff, manufacturing processes and engineering development teams, leading to the company receiving the prestigious ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certifications.

By 2001, a clear vision of the company’s future was defined, and it received an official name change to Sunoptic Technologies® to better reflect our focus on the technological development of premium headlight systems.

25 years later, Sunoptic Technologies® is a leading global supplier in the surgical marketplace offering advanced technology through a premium line of products such as:


Surgical Headlights


High Intensity Xenon and Radiant LED light sources


State-of-the-Art HD Video Cameras and Recording Devices


Fiberoptic Cables

Xenon Lamps


Accessories and More

In 2016, we acquired Luxtel ® LLC, a xenon lamp manufacturer to ensure our continued success and supply or our surgical light sources.

One of our biggest strengths is the experience of our team. Many of the original employees from the company’s inception are still here today! In several cases, we have two generations working together in Jacksonville, further strengthening our legacy as a family run business. Our company prides itself on its family-friendly nature and we believe it’s another reason for our great prosperity and continued success.

We are proud to have a world class Engineering and Product Development team who are experts in glass, optics, fiberoptics, illumination components and finished goods. Sunoptic Technologies® currently holds 7 patents for products designed by this team with many more to come!

In our 45 years, Sunoptic Technologies® has perfected the art of combining vertical integration, low cost manufacturing, worldwide support, a certified quality system, proven vendors and a thorough attention to detail to become a leader in the surgical marketplace.

Shirley Oliver has worked with the company for over 35 years!
Sunoptic Surgical is proud to have two generations of the Orozco family working for the company.
