Back in 1972, Essilor started as a merger of former rivals Essel (the owner of Nylor and the inventor of Varilux) and Silor. I knew about Essilor lenses and contacts for decades but it was a surprise to discover that they made glasses as well. Nowadays, my collection hosts several Essilor glasses, all stylish in one way or the other. These bifocals were an obvious candidate for the new photo shoot with lovely Iris. She accepted my invitation to give them a try and here she is weighing the pros and cons. Great posing!
