NORWALK, CT — L’Amy America announced that it has formed a luxury company called Ultimate Vision USA with the acquisition of Mad Vision.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

In a 2016 press release, South Florida-based Mad Vision described itself as “a unique partnership between wholesale distribution and a fully integrated marketing platform.”

“With the introduction of McLaren, Chris Craft, Henry Jullien and Plein Les Mirettes, we felt that it was very important to complement our current distribution by entering into the luxury eyewear market in a significant way,” said Stephen Rappoport, CEO of L’Amy America. “With Ultimate Vision USA, we are able to offer truly unique technologies and craftsmanship that is not currently available in the eyewear marketplace. Our Ultimate Vision team brings a wealth of experience in the luxury eyewear market and our teams will work closely together to ensure the new company’s success.”

The Ultimate Vision division “is a fantastic opportunity for our high-end optician partners all over the US to differentiate their stores in a very distinctive and qualitative way and offer a new high-level of patient experience,” said Guillaume Pottecher, president of Ultimate Vision.

Ultimate Vision will exhibit the McLaren, Chris Craft, Henry Jullien and Plein Les Mirettes brands at Vision Expo East 2019 at the L’Amy America booth, #2441.

The research was published in the Journal of Glaucoma. It suggests a possible role for meditation as an adjunctive clinical therapy.

The findings “provide tantalizing insight about a therapeutic option that may accompany tried-and-true pharmaceuticals, as well as hint at the role stress may play in glaucoma,” according to AOA.

Researchers “hope this latest study can validate another option for helping prevent irreversible optic nerve head damage.”
