(PRESS RELEASE) DALLAS, TX — Essilor Instruments, a division of EssilorLuxottica and Espansione Group announced a long-term exclusive partnership for North America. Beginning January 1, 2023, Essilor Instruments is the official distributor for the North American market of Espansione Group’s full portfolio of current solutions and future innovations. Espansione Group is an established player in the medtech industry focusing on ophthalmic and dermatological solutions to treat a number of conditions via patented, certified, and light-based technologies such as Light Modulation Low-level Light Therapy (LM LLLT), its signature photobiomodulation technology, and Optimal Power Energy Intense Pulsed Light (OPE IPL).

The partnership sets the bar high when it comes to expectations for the future. “We believe that Espansione Group’s new comprehensive set of technologies represent our best option to deliver great value to our customers.
