Last week I introduced you to the new AccuFit™ Digital Measurement System at LensCrafters which helps narrow your glasses frame choice, find the right lens, and fit the lens with 5x more precise measurements than traditional methods. This week, I had the chance to try it out first hand and it was hands down the best experience I’ve had shopping for new eyeglasses.
My visit started with a thorough eye exam with the store optometrist. With my updated prescription in hand, I began shopping for new eyeglasses and sunglasses. It had been a few years since I bought a new pair of glasses, so I was more than ready for an updated look. The sales associate was incredibly helpful at narrowing down choices that fit my personal style and flattered my face. Once I had my options narrowed down, the fun began.
We sat down at one of the AccuFit Digital Measurement System stations where digital photos were taken of me trying on glasses. Four images were placed side by side on the VirtualMirror screen so I could get a more objective comparison of how the different glasses looked on my face. It’s a great way to really see which pair looks best — far better than looking in a mirror or relying on a friend’s or salesperson’s opinion.
After selecting my favorite frames (Prada eyeglasses and Coach sunglasses), I was immediately fit for my new prescription. The Digital Measurement System was used to pinpoint the relationship between my eyes, face and frame to more accurately place my prescription in my lenses. Final selections on the types of frames I preferred were made (polarized lenses for the sunglasses and anti-reflective lenses for my eyeglasses) and incredibly, my new glasses were ready for me in an hour!
Not only was I completely thrilled with the experience, but I love my new glasses! It’s amazing how a new pair of frames can update your look so completely. In a couple of years, when I’m ready for another change, you can bet I’ll return to LensCrafters.
LensCrafters offers a clearly different optical experience by helping you find your perfect pair of eyeglasses that allows you to see 5x clearer.
