A partnership between NIKON OPTICAL USA INC., and EYEON CORP. LLC., the North American distributor for Swissflex, will bring together two industry leaders to offer patients high-quality, premium eyewear products. This partnership will enable Nikon to offer customers a complete package consisting of Nikon lenses and Swissflex frames. The eyewear will be processed through Encore Optics, the Nikon Lab in South Windsor, Conn.

“With Nikon’s premium lenses and coatings, which are exclusively available through independent eyecare professionals and retailers, and Swissflex’s exceptional frames, independent optical stores can now differentiate themselves from online optical outlets,” the company says.

David Nutchey, commercial head, U.S. of EyeOn Corp, states: “Congratulations to Nikon on becoming a preferred certified lab to glaze Swissflex eyewear. We are thrilled to welcome you to the Swissflex family and know that your expertise, high quality and attention to detail will be a valuable addition to our network. We are confident that our partnership will be a success and look forward to working with Nikon to deliver the best eyewear solution, with the finest optics/coatings, to our customers.”

Matthieu Geoffray, president of Nikon Optical North America, adds: “The Nikon US team is very excited by starting this partnership with Swissflex. It felt like an obvious match as both companies share similar values such as high quality, lightness and personalization. We thank Swissflex for recognizing Nikon US laboratories’ long-term experience and expertise, certifying we will harmoniously bring together two quality products: Swissflex frames with Nikon lenses. This joint offer will support Swissflex and Nikon customers in their search for quality, high end and differentiation.”
