We believe in Improving Lives by Improving Sight, a mission that drives all of our activities.

That’s why we work to raise awareness on the critical health issue poor vision represents in our country, create access to healthy vision for undeserved communities across Canada, and work with passionate partners to break down barriers and open up access to good vision.

Based in Saint-Laurent, Quebec, our work across Canada is represented by Essilor employees and partners from within and outside of the optical industry.
