The J. Lizars company was founded in 1830 by the optician John Lizars (1810-1879) in Glasgow, Scotland. When he died the company was continued, making eyeglasses, telescopes, microscopes, barometers, thermometers, magic lanterns and slides, cameras, stereo cameras and viewers and binoculars. Its stereo viewers and Challenge cameras were innovative. In 1913 it had branch offices in Edinburgh, Paisley, Greenock, Aberdeen, Liverpool and Belfast.

Nowadays the company is merged with C. Jeffrey Black to Black & Lizars and operates as optical retail chain.
