ABOUT ESSILOR GROUP - More than 170 Years Of Experience & History
ESSILOR: WORLD LEADER
Essilor is the world leader in the ophthalmic industry. Essilor is committed to providing solutions to correct and protect the visual health of the 7.7 billion people worldwide.
A STRONG MISSION DRIVING EVERYTHING WE DO: IMPROVING LIVES BY IMPROVING SIGHT
Seeing well is crucial to us being able to learn, work, and interact with the world and people around us. One third of the global population lives with uncorrected poor vision and its consequences. Faced with a largely unrecognized global vision crisis, Essilor is working with partners to launch and scale up several inclusive business and non-profit initiatives so that in the future everyone can see well and live well. That is why Essilor teams are driven by our mission of improving lives by improving sight. Looking ahead our ambition is to eradicate poor vision in one generation.
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES – OUR EXPERTISE AT THE SERVICE OF GOOD VISION
The Essilor Group has put its expertise at the service of good vision in designing, manufacturing and distributing quality products and services through innovative business models. Essilor provides products and services to meet the vision needs of everyone, everywhere. Today, 2.5 billion people suffer from uncorrected poor vision, 6 billion people do not protect their eyes from harmful rays and it is expected that by 2050 6.6 billion people will suffer from uncorrected poor vision.
To address these growing needs we develop vision solutions at every price point and our portfolio includes the most loved eye care brands. We are close to customers and consumers thanks to a unique partnership model; we give access to the best products thanks to our advanced technologies and multichannel distribution worldwide.
