Our business is designing, producing and distributing across the world high-quality products and services that every day help correct, protect and prevent risks to the visual health of the 7.7 billion people on our planet. This global health challenge is at the heart of our strategy and our mission: improving lives by improving sight.
Improving lives by improving sight
Good vision is essential for our everyday wellbeing and quality of life. Seeing well enables us to learn, work, and fully interact with the world around us.
That’s why Essilor teams worldwide are driven by our vital mission of improving lives by improving sight.
Innovation has been a strategic focus since the Group’s origins. To respond to developments in visual health, our research is focused on understanding the needs of all consumers and eye care professionals in three areas: correction, protection and prevention of eye disease.
One third of the global population live with uncorrected poor vision and its consequences. Faced with a largely unrecognised 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.
