Essilor Instruments Celebrates Six-Year Anniversary of Mr. Orange with Special Offer
Perfect balance of speed and performance and now long-term peace of mind

Mr. Orange Six-Year Anniversary

Dallas, TX, Essilor Instruments today announced that for the 6th anniversary of the Mr. Orange edger, it is pleased to offer a six-year warranty for every order placed between June 1, 2017 and July 31, 2017. Thanks to its perfect balance of speed and performance, Mr. Orange sets a simple and reachable standard for even the most difficult jobs. The ophthalmic industry has also long recognized the value-added benefits of Mr. Orange! In 2011, Mr. Orange won the SILMO d’Or award, and was endorsed again in 2014 with the “Pont d’Or award from the French Inform’ Optique magazine, where 11,000 opticians ranked their favorite suppliers.

“Over the last six years since the Mr. Orange launch, eye care professionals from all over the world have valued the superior aesthetic and optical quality of the largest panel of jobs with precision and high-end comfort. The six-year warranty special offer is our appreciation for the support of the eye care professionals and shows the confidence we have in the top quality and flexibility provided by the Mr. Orange edger. Today, after six years, we see no reason why Mr. Orange would not continue its path to success and to excellent customer satisfaction,” said Damien Rousseau, CEO of Essilor Instruments USA.

Mr. Orange goes beyond standards:

  • Full High Curve Function: Specific wheel for high-wrap management from tracing to glazing; dynamic 3D compensation; GCD module inclination up to 30 degrees
  • Fit-4-Frame Technology: Adaptation to all types of frames with adjustable bevel profiles
  • Drilling: Made super easy with the optical tracing and the auto detection of the holes
  • Star Control Process: Control of the lens integrity for lenses with hydrophobic treatment

The six-year warranty gives customers added protection and peace of mind well beyond the standard period. Eye care professionals are encouraged to contact their Essilor Instruments sales representatives for details on the warranty coverage.
