Meanwhile, the company is bringing to its local headquarters a taste of its France-based parent company.

Essilor of America is sponsoring an exhibition of 70 iconic works by the masters of French 19th century art at the Dallas Museum of Art. The show, called "Bonjour, Monsieur Courbet! The Bruyas Collection of the Musee Fabre, Montpellier," will be on display through early January.

"The viewing of the paintings, drawings, and sculptures from this beautiful period is a subtle reminder as to why our company's mission is all about vision," said Hubert Sagnieres, president of Essilor of America.
