Investing in research and development
To support our mission of “Improving Lives by Improving Sight” we invest in research and development throughout the whole business. This enables us to provide solutions tailored to the needs of every individual and to meet new vision challenges.
Meeting the diversity of visual health needs is a significant challenge. To support the ophthalmic research, Essilor has created more than twenty research partnerships with universities and public research organisations including, the Vision Institute in Paris, CNRS and Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal.
