Known for its brands including Ray-Ban, Oakley, Oliver Peoples, Sunglass Hut and LensCrafters, EssilorLuxottica states that it has “removed the stigma of wearing prescription glasses by turning a necessary medical device into an iconic fashion accessory, and since then, reimagined what a pair of glasses can do for the person who wears them.
“Throughout our 10-year smart eyewear journey, we have honed our R&D, manufacturing, and distribution capabilities through several partnerships and product releases, including the recent introduction of Ray- Ban Meta. At CES, we take our place among the world’s leading innovators with a product, Nuance Audio, that has the potential to improve quality of life for over a billion people”, said Francesco Milleri, Chairman and CEO at EssilorLuxottica.

At its booth (#8725) CES, the Company has showcased a prototype for Nuance Audio, a pair of glasses with advanced hearing technology built in seamlessly. Hearing solutions is an underpenetrated market where, similar to vision care decades ago, consumers are averse to wearing traditional corrective devices for a number of reasons including their visibility, discomfort and price.
Designed for consumers with mild to moderate hearing loss, Nuance Audio will eliminate the psychological barrier that has stood in the way of adoption of traditional hearing aids integrating proprietary state of-the- art open-ear hearing technology into fashionable eyeglasses. Nuance Audio is expected to launch in the market starting with North America in the second half of the year.
The EssilorLuxottica booth also featured Ray-Ban Meta, its Ray-Ban glasses with built-in cameras, open-ear audio, AI-powered solutions and the ability to livestream and take calls hands-free, as well as the Group’s new HELIX division with Vision(X), an intelligent and interconnected platform that will help modernize eyecare practices offering a full range of innovative digital solutions including tele-optometry and big data services for the world of optics.
