OPSM parent company loses $33.5 million ADF contract for privacy breach

The parent company of OPSM, Luxottica Retail Australia has lost a $33.5 million contract with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) by sending ADF medical records overseas.

Luxottica was awarded the contract by the ADF in 2012 under which it provided optical services to all ADF personnel.  At that time, Luxottica claimed that it would exclusively offer eye services to more than 80,000 ADF personnel each year primarily through its OPSM stores.
