Italian eyewear powerhouse Luxottica Group has entered an asset purchase agreement with glasses.com, a Web site owned by for-profit health care provider WellPoint Inc. The acquisition paves the way for Luxottica to expand its digital offering in the U.S., which the company considers a key market, said Luxottica chief executive officer Andrea Guerra. He added that the purchase would be essential for “innovating the shopping experience and improving the quality of products and services available to consumers.”


Glasses.com allows customers to virtually try on eyewear through three-dimensional image technology, showing people how they look with different sets of frames and allowing them to share results with family and friends on social media platforms.
