I just recently discovered that I need reading glasses. My arms are not long enough to hold pill bottles as far enough away from me that I need in order to see the labels. I also realized that squinting with one eye closed wasn’t working too well either.
I have tried a whole bunch of different frames, and I look like a complete dork in all of them.
|That’s right. Sunday afternoon. Messy hair. No lipstick. Took the pictures myself. Don’t you judge me!|
I don’t know if it’s that my face is lopsided, or if one ear is higher than the other, or if I am just too picky and I can’t find any that I like. (Or perhaps I just don’t want to admit that my eyesight isn’t what it used to be…) At any rate, when I heard that LensCrafters has something called Accufit, which is a state-of-the-art digital technology that measures the relationship between your eyes, face, and frame to more accurately place your prescription in your lenses for clear, crisp vision. It is 5 times more accurate than traditional, manual methods, and is done right there in the store.
I hopped over to the LensCrafters website to check it out.
There is a short video that explains exactly what the measure for and how they do it. (And it appears that I might, in fact, that I might actually have a lopsided face…)
In addition to the accurate measurements (which is the important part, of course. I know this.) they have something called LensSimulator, which lets you experience the benefits advanced lenses to find the best option for your lifestyle, but what I’m pretty stoked to try is something called a VirtualMirror where you can try on several different styles and see digital images of what they look like, side by side, at the same time. That will be most helpful!
Conner is getting his Driver’s Permit soon, and I know he needs to get his eyes re-checked. LensCrafters often have ophthalmologist offices right next door to them. I am making an appointment for both of us and we’re going to go and get properly fitted with some new specs! I need to not look like an angry librarian in my reading glasses!
LensCrafters offers a clearly different optical experience by helping you find your perfect pair of eyeglasses that allows you to see 5x clearer.
Do you need new glasses?
