Reading time : 3 minutes


On the eve of celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2022, Eyes-Road can celebrate the progress made in the promotion and deployment of EDI in the world of optics. To share on its recent developments and its news, the EEIG Eyes-Road wishes to meet the professional press by renewing, health circumstances oblige, the remote meeting experience initiated last year.


Since September 24, l'Abécédaire designed and distributed by Eyes-Road can be downloaded free of charge from a dedicated form on the Eyes-Road site and on social networks.

This dematerialized edition is intended for all the professional actors of the optics (opticians, manufacturers, suppliers, professional press …) but also to the students related to our sector.

The educational character of a primer does not is more to be demonstrated.

"The EDI Primer by Eyes-Road" fits naturally into this perspective but it also aims to definitively demystify this awful acronym to further facilitate the deployment, use and finally the anchoring of the EDI in the optics.

The writing of this opus is the fruit of a collective work which mobilized the whole team. Each, in their specialty, has worked with their own sensitivity, experience and expertise to offer the reader the drafting of a definition that is most appropriate and most accessible to the vocabularies, expressions, titles and acronyms used in data exchanges.

The ABC's access to our entire community is, for Eyes-Road, a new logical step in its history.
