Who are Essilor?

Simply put, we make the lenses for your glasses so you can see clearly, but we do so much more than this!

With over 150 years of history, we have pushed the boundaries on what your eyes can achieve. We invented the varifocal lens in 1959 to help combat presbyopia, an eye condition that will affect each and every one of us in our later years.

Now, our lens solutions do more than just correct your eyesight but also protect your eye health and enhance your clarity of vision. We have a range of lenses for all ages and lifestyles.
