Our on-site labs let us ensure the quality of every lens is exceptional while providing a quick turnaround.
The art of crafting lenses
We use the accurate prescription from your eye exam*, the information gathered by your associate during your store visit, including your AccuFit™ measurements that account for your face shape, as well as the type of lens you need. By the time your glasses order goes to our on-site lab, we have a personalized set of instructions on how they should be made.
Glasses in about an hour
In many cases, your lenses can be made in the on-site lab at your local LensCrafters. The technology in our labs is the same state of the art equipment found in large-scale production facilities; in some cases, it’s even more advanced. Our leadership in the industry has allowed us to invest in this technology, and in turn, provide our customers with high quality lenses that are ready for pick-up in about an hour.
While many types of prescription lenses can be made in our lab, certain lenses, including authentic brand lenses, High Definition lenses, or lenses for very strong prescriptions, require more time or the use of a special production facility. When we send your lenses to our off-site facility, we still go out of our way to deliver your specialty eyeglass lenses to you on time. If they can’t be ready in about an hour, they will always be ready for your pick-up on the date we provide.
Improved vision with anti-reflective
LensCrafters is always developing ways to help you see clearer, farther, and in brighter color. The newest addition to our labs is an Anti-Reflective coating machine. It’s one more feature we can offer our customers in our One Hour service.
AR coating eliminates glare and relieves eyestrain caused by frequent computer use or night driving. Lenses with this coating repel dust and smudges and wipe clean easily. And by eliminating reflections on the front of your lenses, people can see through your lenses to your eyes, for a better view of you.
We partnered with a world-class equipment producer to bring the Anti-Reflective in an Hour capability into our labs. And while it’s currently only in some stores, we continue to invest in the technology so we can help more customers see their best. If you’re interested in the one-hour AR coating, contact your local LensCrafters and see if this service is available.
Certified lab technicians
A lab technician oversees every detail of your lens creation process, from cutting the lens to triple-checking your finished glasses. Our lab technicians are highly trained and certified through a rigorous exam process. This helps ensure you receive an impeccably made pair of glasses the first time.
Today, you’ll find an on-site lab in most LensCrafters stores. It’s part of our underlying commitment to customer satisfaction and industry innovation. And we continue to develop new lens technology and lens-cutting capabilities, so we can help you see with perfect clarity.
