Monday, 21 July 2008
In its recent half year financial report Essilor reports five new acquisitions in Europe, the United States and Asia.

In Germany, a majority interest has been acquired in Nika GmbH, a lens wholesaler that is the country’s exclusive distributor of Nikon products. Based in Winningen (Rhineland-Palatinate), the company has revenues of roughly €9 million. Its purchase is designed to strengthen the close fit between Essilor’s German distributor networks.

In the United States, the prescription laboratory network has been further strengthened by Essilor of America’s acquisition of majority stakes in Deschutes (based in Oregon and Idaho, with revenues of $2.7 million) and Optimatrix (based in Alabama, with revenues of $4.6 million).

In Malaysia, Essilor has acquired the country’s leading independent laboratory Frame N’ Lenses. With revenues of €2 million and a local market share of 5%, the new subsidiary will improve the Company’s control over the local distribution of its entry-level products. In India, Essilor has acquired the assets of Sankar & Co’s ophthalmic division, comprising five formerly franchised laboratories in the Coimbatore region, which together generate €0.9 million in revenues. In particular, the new unit will develop a Crizal® anti-reflective lens center.

In New Zealand, a former Southland Hospital ophthalmologist and the Southland District Health Board have been directed to apologise to an Invercargill man (picture) who was left legally blind after a lack of follow-up care.

In a recent report, Health and Disability Commissioner Ron Paterson says former Southland Hospital eye surgeon Dr B, whom The Southland Times has identified as Brett Rogers, and the board both breached guidelines in the treatment of the patient.

Dr Rogers and the board breached the Code of Health and Disability Services Consumers' Rights of Graham Moodie by failing to provide him with the appropriate standard of care, the report says.

Southland District Health Board interim chief executive Brian Rousseau said the board accepted the findings.

In Japan, plano contact lenses are not regarded as medical devices. Their distribution is not regulated and as such they are sold in ordinary shops and on the Internet.

Following a series of ocular infections observed by many young users in Japan, Tokyo has decided to legislate the sale of these products before the end of this year. As a consequence of this new legislation, cosmetic contacts could only be sold by eye care practitioners.
