We believe passionately in correcting and protecting vision

Discover our lenses

 

Our mission is to improve lives by improving sight

 

We do that by creating innovative lens solutions tailored to each individual’s vision and their lifestyle needs.

 

What drives us is knowing that good vision is essential for our everyday well-being and quality of life. Seeing well enables us to learn, work, and fully interact with the world around us.

 

Everyone deserves good vision.

 

Based in Bristol, Manchester and London, United Kingdom and Blessington, Ireland, our lenses are designed in France, manufactured locally and distributed worldwide.

 

Innovation

Our optical lenses are systematically developed, tested and validated by people like you, because we only want to create innovations that are relevant to you and it’s our commitment to innovate visual solutions built around you. It’s your approbation that validates our innovations.

We anticipate major social trends like an ageing population, a high growth in wearers or new wearer habits and overcome the visual challenges brought on by these changes.

SUSTAINABILITY

We believe in a fair, sustainable future - one where every individual has access to primary eye care services and good vision. The ambition is to eradicate poor vision from the face of the earth in one generation.

Since 2013, the company has dedicated a special focus on the 2.5bn people who remain uncorrected due to lack of awareness or access to eyecare professionals and solutions.

Our sustainability goals go further than just inclusive businesses and programmes, we are always optimising our environmental footprint and engaging in dialogue with our many stakeholders to uphold ethical business dealings.
