Essilor International is a French-based international ophthalmic optics company that designs, manufactures and markets lenses to correct or protect eyesight.[1] Its headquarters is in Charenton-le-Pont (near Paris), France.


It is the world's largest manufacturer of ophthalmic lenses.[2] The firm is responsible for creating Varilux, the world's first progressive lens, which corrects presbyopia and allows clear vision in the wearer's near, intermediate and far vision.[1][3] The company formed from the merger of ophthalmic firms Essel and Silor in 1972.[4]


Silor (Société Industrielle de Lunetterie et d'Optique Rationnelle) first started under the name Lissac in 1931 as a retailer of ophthalmic lenses and frames before becoming a lens manufacturer. In 1959, the same year Essel invented the progressive lens, Lissac made a discovery of its own: the Orma 1000 lens, made from a lightweight material.[citation needed]


After many years as rivals, Essel and Silor merged on 1 January 1972 to form Essilor, then the world's third-largest ophthalmic optical firm.[1] Its first year of existence was marked by the creation of Valoptec, a non-trading company composed of stockholder managers who held half the company's capital stock, and the purchase of Benoist-Bethiot, a French lens manufacturer specializing in progressive lenses.


In the mid-1970s, Essilor focused on becoming a true optical group specializing in plastic progressive lenses. Many subsidiary activities were first sold off, but in 1974 Essilor fused Benoist-Bethiot with Guilbert-Routit, creating the subsidiary BBGR. In 1975, the company was listed on the stock exchange. The innovations by Essel and Silor led to the Varilux Orma's launch in 1976.[citation needed]


Essilor has gradually withdrawn its frames business to focus on corrective lenses. It has launched a coating, Crizal, that provides lenses with resistance to scratches, reflections and stains. Essilor partnered with PPG of the United States to develop Transitions, a technology that allows lenses to become darker or lighter depending on the intensity of ambient light. With the acquisition of Gentex, Essilor also launched the polycarbonate Airwear lens, a lightweight, unbreakable material.[citation needed]


In 2010 Essilor acquired FGX International, an American company whose brands include Foster Grant.[10] In 2011 Essilor acquired 50% of the Chinese company Wanxin Optical. The growth drivers for the Chinese market are the aging population and the increase of reimbursement for eye care.[11] The 40th anniversary of the merger between Essel and Silor was in July 2012, an occasion to highlight their contributions and improvements on technologies.[12] As of September 2012, Essilor has been involved in the Special Olympics for 10 years, providing almost 100,000 free eyeglasses to the athletes.[13] In May 2013, Safilo and Essilor agreed on a 10-year licensing deal allowing Essilor to use Safilo's Polaroid brand for polarized lenses.[14] In July 2013, Essilor bought 51% of Transitions Optical's stakes from PPG Industries.[15] Essilor will eventually hold 100% of Transitions Optical. The deal was closed in 2014,[16] and aims to develop Essilor's leadership in lenses that adapt to changing light.[17] In March 2014, Essilor announced the acquisition of the Canadian online distributor Coastal.com, which rebranded as Clearly.ca in 2015. Essilor reinforced its presence online, adding Coastal.com to its online subsidiaries, such as MyOnlineOptical, FramesDirect and Eyebuydirect.[18]


Essilor will bring together 300 people and the activity of five of its French sites in one in the Paris region, where he will invest 40 million euros. This decision will notably lead to the closure of its Antony (Hauts-de-Seine) and Vaulx-en-Velin (Rhône) units.[37]


In 2020, about 88.8% of Essilor's turnover[39] came from the sale of ophthalmic lenses and optical instruments, 8.9% driven by sunglasses and readers and 2.3% from other activities, such as equipment sales.


Essilor operates a worldwide network of production plants, prescription laboratories, and distribution centers that supply corrective lenses, glasses, and sunglasses to opticians, optical chains, and consumers (via e-retailers it owns and/or operates directly).


Essilor has about 450 researchers working at its five R&D facilities: one in Ireland dedicated to photochromic lenses and four Innovation and Technologies Centers in Europe (Créteil, France), the United States (Dallas) and Asia (China and Singapore). The facilities develop new products and work to identify and forge the best possible research partnerships.


Researchers today use a virtual visualization system, equipped with algorithms and modeling Essilor developed to explore new optical solutions that can be tested directly on wearers. This simulator makes it possible to vary the properties of the lenses tested, study optical effects and immediately gauge wearer satisfaction. To do so, a magnetic sensor records a subject's head movements and images that show the eyes' exact viewpoint 120 times per second. After testing, the results are used to fine-tune the lenses' performance. In 2008, the Varilux Ipseo New Edition was designed using Essilor's Virtual Reality system.


Varilux is a brand of progressive lenses for people with presbyopia-correcting their vision at near and far distances and in between. Engineer Bernard Maitenaz invented the lens and in 1959 it was the first progressive lens available on the market.


In 2015 Essilor launched Eyezen lenses, designed for people's increasingly connected lives. Its research had determined that the reading distance of 40 cm that had been used as a standard for lens development had decreased to an average 33 cm when using digital tools.[56]


Transitions Optical, Inc., specializing in photochromic lenses, started as a joint venture between PPG Industries and Essilor International S.A. in 1990. In 2009, it launched the first commercially viable photochromic shield for motorcycle helmets. In 2010, it introduced Transitions XTRActive lenses, with technology that allows the lenses to activate behind the windshield.


Vision Direct, formerly Vision Direct Group Ltd , is an online optical retailer that sells contact lenses, solutions and eye care products. Founded in 2004 as Optical Partners plc (unlisted), a small High Street retail business headed by Michael Kraftman,[58] the company is based in the United Kingdom but also operates in the United States, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands and Belgium. In 2014 it rebranded itself from GetLenses.[59]


CrystalView Anti-reflective (AR) coating goes on both sides of the lens (backside only for sunglasses), and it allows light to pass more freely through the lens. AR No-Glare coating makes it easier for other people to see the wearer?s eyes, and it makes it easier for the wearer to see through the lens. AR coating is very useful for night driving and for people who look at computer screens. Sharpview does not include UV protection.

If your lenses scratch, you can send them back to Eyeglasses.com, and we will process the remake of your lenses through Essilor. We charge a $15 fee to process and ship your glasses back to you.


Applying thin-film coatings to plastic requires laying an extremely fragile coating on a soft, porous, and temperature-sensitive substrate. for maximum quality anti-reflective coatings, the coater needs to know the lens substrate, lens manufacturer brand, and type of scratch coating. identifying the lens material enables coaters to formulate their AR process to the substrate?s index and chemical composition. identifying the brand identifies which scratch coating is on the lens. the resins used in a particular lens can also affect the adhesion of AR coatings. lenses with resin that are more stable and less heat sensitive can better accept AR coatings and provide better coating durability.


Crizal Alize is waranteed by Essilor for two years in the same prescription. If your lenses scratch, you can send them back to Eyeglasses.com, and we will process the remake of your lenses through Essilor.

There is no perfect method for cleaning lenses because any time you touch a lens, you could be pushing dirt against it and scratching it. We have found that the best method is to use a clean, micro-fiber cloth, and rub gently. Lens cleaing solutions could damage the AR coating. You can also use soapy fingers under the sink, but be sure not to dry the lens except with a clean micro fiber cloth.
