Essilor Features Crizal Lenses In Golden Globes Luxury Gift Lounge

By Essilor News


DALLAS – Jan. 8, 2013 – Essilor of America, the nation’s leading manufacturer of optical lenses, is helping celebrities look their best while protecting their eyes from the California sun this award season with Crizal UV™ lenses. The company will gift luxury sunwear to top celebrities, VIPs and entertainment media through its participation in GBK Production’s Luxury Gift Lounge Jan. 11-12 at the L’Hermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. The annual event will be held in honor of the 70th Annual Golden Globes nominees and presenters.

An exclusive list of guests will receive eyewear with Crizal UV lenses in luxury frames and will pose for photographs in Crizal UV lens eyewear.

The new Crizal No-Glare lenses provide the most complete daily UV protection featuring an exclusive anti-reflective coating on the backside of the lens, Broad Spectrum Technology, which virtually eliminates UV light reflection into the eyes, while maintaining maximum visible light transmission for crisper, clearer vision. This technology extends superior No-Glare efficiency from visible to UV light.

GBK Productions, a leading luxury lifestyle gift lounge and special events company, consistently provides an unmatched environment for sharing the latest trends while making charitable
donations a focal point of each event.

“Essilor is excited to have the opportunity to highlight Crizal lenses to the entertainment world as the exclusive eyewear partner for the second consecutive year in GBK’s Golden Globes Gift Lounge,” said Theresa Agnew, senior vice president of marketing, Essilor of America. “We are looking forward to providing celebrities, VIPs and media with a unique opportunity to experience the best in No-Glare lenses in an exciting and engaging environment.”
