Our year

In 2016, we continued to deliver on our vision of providing high quality and affordable eye care to more and more people around the world. We increased our position across all segments of the expanding optical retail market. We also demonstrated the resilience of our customer-centric business model over the 2016 period and the availability of our high quality products and services.

Our store network grew by 6.6% through organic growth and small acquisitions that enabled us to further improve our accessibility towards our customers and outperform the underlying markets. We also welcomed many passionate new employees, including many highly qualified and dedicated vision experts.

We look forward to enhancing our global capabilities further, for the benefit of millions of new and existing customers.
