Ideal Eyes Systems

About Ideal Eyes

We produce machine vision and image processing software and solutions for Microsoft Windows

Our flagship product, OptimEyes, was originally released under the name HLImage++ by Western Vision Software in 1995. It is a high-performance, easy to use, extensible application with a large collection of standard image processing and analysis tools. OptimEyes can be used to develop a wide variety of machine vision solutions using easy point and click scripting. Solutions can then be deployed with a simplified interface that contains only the elements needed for the task using CustomEyes.

Ideal Eyes acquired the rights to HLImage++ in 2022 and continues to build on its legacy.
