Date:7/13/2010

CHARENTON-LE-PONT, France, July 13, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- On June 28, 2010, Essilor cancelled 4,000,000 shares, in line with its commitment not to create any dilution for existing shareholders. The two-part transaction was carried out as follows:

    - 2,130,000 shares were cancelled to offset the dilutive impact of the
      vesting of performance shares or the exercise of stock options granted
      to employees.

    - 1,870,000 shares were cancelled to offset the dilution resulting from
      the conversion of the now mature OCEANE convertible bonds. The shares
      had been purchased as part of a program launched in 2008 to buy back up
      to 6,900,000 shares for allocation on conversion of the OCEANE bonds
      then outstanding. To date, Essilor has bought back 5,200,000 shares
      under this program, of which 3,370,000 have now been cancelled.
