Increasing access to vision care is an important part of Essilor’s mission of improving lives by improving sight. One of the key barriers to bringing vision care to the developing world is the lack of affordable testing tools and Essilor’s ClickCheck™ is breaking down that barrier.
New initiatives to respond to COVID-19 and mobilize our workforce, new products, new partnerships, a new record for our Special Lenses team, and accelerating the integration between Essilor and Luxottica... Here are 12 highlights of 2020!
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has definitely had an impact on how Essilor does business with its customers. In this context and in keeping with the Group's strategy, the team at Global Marketing together with the Instruments division, developed a B2B platform to engage eye care professionals virtually.
COVID-19 may have somewhat hampered plans but it certainly did not deter Essilorians from marking an important date in the year for the Group - World Sight Day 2020! Despite the challenging circumstances, so many of our teams supported the Essilor Group Corporate campaign and got creative online or offline.
Jean Todt, President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety, and Paul du Saillant, CEO of Essilor International, recently met at the FIA headquarters in Paris to continue driving together a global change on the importance of vision for safe mobility.
Essilor’s Special Lenses Lab recently achieved a new record by creating a high-performing optical solution for Mr. Ptáček in the Czech Republic. This is thanks to the technical expertise, perseverance and ingenuity of the SL Lab team based in France in collaboration with Essilor’s Optics, Instruments and R&D teams.
