Josef Dallos was born in Budapest, the son of a head teacher. He qualified as a doctor in 1928 working in the Number 1 University Clinic of Ophthalmology under Professor Emile de Grosz. He soon took up contact lens fitting using the original Zeiss lenses. He suggested some improvements in their design which were jointly patented with Zeiss.
