ESSILOR ANSWERS NEOLENS COMPLAINT

 MIAMI, Fla., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Neolens, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEOL) announced today that it has received an answer from Essilor of America, Inc. to the legal complaint filed by Neolens against Essilor last month. The answer includes a motion to dismiss charges made by Neolens against Essilor, as well as a counterclaim against Neolens for breach of the Distribution Agreement between the companies. Neolens believes the alleged breach was caused by Essilor and the counterclaim has no merit. Neolens intends to vigorously pursue its original claims against Essilor with regard to the contract.
 In a separate action, Essilor filed a complaint to force Neolens to register the shares of common stock acquired by Essilor from Neolens under the terms of a Stock Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement. The Registration Rights Agreement provided Essilor limited registration rights beginning June 1993. The shares were sold to Essilor at a discount simultaneous with the closing of the Distribution Agreement, with respect to which Neolens initiated the legal proceedings against Essilor. Accordingly, Neolens is prepared to defend its position against the registration of these shares.
