What is the Lens-Annual Lens Event?
Until September 12th consumers who buy a complete pair of glasses (meaning optical or sunglasses made with prescription lenses) get 50% off the price of their lenses.
What is the AccuFit difference?
LensCrafters stores across the U.S. are equipped with AccuFit – the brand’s digital measurement system that is gives a 5 times more accurate pupil measurement.
Who is this event for?
Everyone! Soon the seasons will be changing, which is a great time for a new look. Also, before kids go back to school it is a great time to get their eyes checked.
Key facts about kid’s vision:
– 80% of learning in a child’s first 12 years comes through the eyes.
– Up to 25% of school-age children have vision problems that can affect learning.
– Nearly 10 million children in the US have undetected vision problems.
I got mine! I have to say the LensCrafters experience was exceptional. And not just because I received a free pair. The experience was great because I had just gone to my Ophthalmologist 2 months ago and it was very easy to compare the 2 experiences. Additionally, the experience was so great that I purchased a 2nd pair at my own expense. To me, the fact that I opened my own wallet, speaks volumes more than anything else could!
The first thing that happened was a visit to the Optometrist. Here’s where the comparisons begin. I had been avoiding my return visit to my eye doctor because I would always feel rushed and didn’t love the service. That should have been my sign to change, but I got lazy and I need certain eye tests as there is a family eye disease to watch out for.
My general practitioner makes money based on churning through patients. The Optometrist at LensCrafters is not under the same pressure. The Optometrist that serviced me was wonderful. Why? Because when I explained that I had originally started this process because I felt my prescription had changed, she explained that my eyesight had improved! The other guy couldn’t have spent an extra minute and told me something that incredibly positive? Additionally there were several tests that this Optometrist was able to use that my doctor did not have in his office.
The selection of frames at LensCrafters was also quite extensive. The Persol frames were gorgeous but RayBan worked better for my face. Gorgeous either way (hey, I have self esteem today!). But what clinched the deal for me was all the technological advances there were to take part in! Firstly, it may seem elementary, but they take pictures of you with whatever frames you choose. This is after 40 years of trying to see myself in new frames without being able to see because my prescription is not in the store frame. Now, I can put on my glasses and see myself on the computer screen, after 40 years of buying frames without being able to really see what they looked like. What a brilliant innovation!
It always takes me awhile to get used to new frames. That time period is now shortened because of all the measuring the technician did with me to fit the glasses. I cannot tell you how glad I was at choosing not to buy my new glasses 2 months ago at my eye doctor. The service at LensCrafters was far superior to any eyeglass service I have received in many years.
So, take care of your eyes. And don’t get lazy like I did. And travel if you have to. I used to be a LensCrafters customer years ago when I worked across the street from one. I did not know the advancements I was missing out on by not continuing with them. I learned my lesson!
