For 170 years Essilor has been driven by the mission of improving lives by improving sight, but today 2.5 billion people still lack vision correction. This is why we’re working to eradicate poor vision from the world by 2050. Our ambition and targets, aligned with UN sustainable goals, drive our efforts and enable us to measure our progress.

Help us share the message that vision matters. Because good vision is everyone’s basic human right.LEARN MORE
