Head back to school with Grade A vision

Before the school year even begins, there’s a test that students–and parents–should take: an eye exam.

An annual eye exam will not only test whether your eyes are in good health but ensure that your prescription is up to date. The right prescription, however, is only part of the recipe for optimal vision.

With the AccuFit Digital Measurement System–found exclusively at LensCrafters–your vision can be five times more precise than with the traditional manual approach. AccuFit measures the distance between your pupils, the spacing between your eyes, and the shape of your eyewear to ensure the best possible placement of the prescription in your lenses.

The lenses themselves are the focus of the AccuFit LensSimulator, which allows you to try out different lens options. And AccuFit’s myLook feature lets you “test drive” four frame styles at once, so you can feel confident selecting your perfect pair of frames. The right glasses capture your style, your personality, and of course, help you see your world.

For a selection of the latest eyewear fashion or to make an appointment for an exam, visit your local LensCrafters or Find more details at under the savings tab.
