Coastal Contacts, a Canadian online contact lens company, has pushed further into the European market with its acquisition of MyLenses, a Dutch online lens company, for an undisclosed amount. Robert van der Leeuw will continue as managing director of the Dutch company. In 2004 Coastal bought a Swedish company, Lensway, and it claims that this business has grown by 300 percent since the takeover. In its 2nd quarter, ended April 30, Coastal's sales were up by 18.5 percent to 17.6 million Canadian dollars (€12.4m-$15.8m), but its pre-tax profit dropped by 78 percent to C$100,000 (€71,000-$90,000).
