Essilor Debuts Xperio Video Series And Webinar Program
By Essilor News
DALLAS – (Jan. 8, 2009) – Today, Essilor of America, Inc., the nation's leading manufacturer of optical lenses, introduced an Xperio™ educational video series as a follow up to the Xperio Sunwear Conversation role-play video previously released during the summer of 2009.
In this new DVD, Dr. Mark R. Wright discusses why polarized lenses are the best outside lens solution, and how eyecare professionals (ECPs) can more successfully talk about prescription sunwear with their patients.
“There is a significant opportunity to continue to expand the use of polarized lenses by informing patients about the benefits of a primary outside pair of eyeglasses,” said Carl Bracy, vice president of marketing for Essilor of America. “Xperio lenses provide ECPs with an opportunity to grow their practices.”
Also planned for January through August is an Xperio polarized lenses webinar training program and promotion for ECPs. Every optometrist, dispenser and optician who participates in the webinar will receive a complimentary Xperio lens voucher and be eligible to win an "Experience the Outdoors" prize, such as a set of high-end, professional golf clubs and tour bag.
Xperio polarized lenses allow patients to experience both a safe and beautiful world by delivering UV protection, glare reduction and improved contrast sensitivity and visual acuity,
allowing wearers to experience the outdoors with exceptional clarity and comfort.
ECPs can visit www.xperio.com/training for webinar program details. Finally, ECPs can also look for an Xperio iPhone® application—also coming in January.
