Essilor of America, Inc. (Essilor) competes in the dynamic and growing consumer durables/medical devices/healthcare industry, as the leading manufacturer and wholesaler of prescription lenses in the United States. Essilor and its subsidiary, Essilor Laboratories of America, Inc., (Essilor Laboratories) owns the largest and most comprehensive optical laboratory network in the United States. Essilor USA is a subsidiary of Paris-based Essilor International, S.A., a publicly held company traded on the Euronext Paris stock exchange (Reuters: ESSI.PA).

Research, product innovation and service to the eye-care professional distinguish Essilor from its competitors and characterize Essilor as the world leader in ophthalmic optics. Essilor is committed to the research and development of innovative products, and the company continues to set new standards within the industry. As a result, Essilor has been recognized as one the World’s Most Innovative Companies for five years in a row by Forbes Magazine, and most recently has been listed as one of the top 51 companies that will change the world by Fortune Magazine.
