Essilor Canada Responds to Ontario Court Decision

Optik has obtained a statement from Essilor Canada responding to the ruling of the Ontario Superior Court in favour of the joint application by the College of Optometrists of Ontario and the College of Opticians of Ontario against Clearly, an online division of Essilor Canada Group Inc., to comply with Ontario’s dispensing regulations.

The full statement from Essilor Canada:

“Essilor Canada is aware of the Ontario Court’s ruling. Clearly has filed a motion to appeal that decision and has filed an application to stay the Court’s decision as part of the appeal process.

Essilor and its entire group of companies, are fully committed to complying with laws, regulations and requirements in all the countries and jurisdictions where we operate.

Our corporate mission is to improve lives by improving sight. To achieve that, at Essilor Canada we firmly believe in the importance of adopting and embracing advancements in technology to not only better diagnose and prevent eye health issues but to also provide better access to vision correction and protection solutions.

The reality is that in our industry and in many others, the needs of consumers are evolving and alternate channels are here and ever evolving.  It is of key importance for Essilor to continue to work hand-in-hand with Opticians, Optometrists and all eye care professionals while also addressing consumers’ new buying preferences, in order to provide access to the best quality of eye care for all Canadians.

In the meantime, we continue to promote that good vision is part of good health and that regular eye exams should be performed by licensed eye care professionals.”
