Did you know that only 11% of the glass-wearing population actually get prescription for their sunglasses? Not a presription wearer myself, I can’t imagine spending a hot summer day sunglass-less, squinting and not protecting those peepers from the harmful UV rays. Well, Lenscrafters has a perfect solution for you, squinty eyed person with vision problems. Their RxHIBITION program allows you to replace the lenses of your Lenscrafters sunglasses with prescription ones, quickly and efficiently. You should also know, that if you buy eyewear from Lenscrafters, on top of lovely service and great selection, you will also be getting a 90-day unconditional guarantee, one-hour service, and free adjustments and cleanings for those brand new (sun)glasses of yours! Sounds like a damn good deal to me.
Lenscrafters carries a vast variety of brands for every personality out there: D&G, Burberry, Ray Ban (my faves), DKNY, Tory Burch, and many more. You can even take an online quiz, just like the attendees of the RxHIBITION event did, to determine which eyeglass frame personality type you are. I, myself, was deemed a Style Maven (ha!), though I usually tend to gravitate towards the Classic Wayfarer look more often than not. Either way, the quiz is quick and fun, and helpful, especially if you are cripplingly indecisive.
The event’s gorgeous hostess – actress Mena Suvari – attended last week’s event, sharing that she’s a longtime fan of Lenscrafters, and prefers the classic shades like Ray Ban, herself. And though Mena had lasik eye surgery to fix her vision problems, she still rocks her fave Lenscrafters sunglasses all year long.
So tell me, do you use prescription sunglasses? I’d love to hear your stories!
