Since 1988, LensCrafters has supported OneSight. Today, our associates and independent doctors have helped provide crisp,clear vision to millions around the world.
Worldwide, 733 million people suffer from poor vision. An eye exam and glasses could restore sight for more than half a billion people. All people deserve to see their very best to work, read and look into the faces of those they love. That’s why LensCrafters supports OneSight – to provide better sight for all.
You'll find the mission of OneSight embraced by all of us at LensCrafters, from the Independent Doctors* to store associates to lens technicians, who regularly volunteer for missions. In fact, there are LensCrafters representatives on every trip OneSight takes. Our technology drives the on-site labs that bring the gift of sight to so many.

Carl Highsmith, a senior member of the LC Operations Service Quality Team, was volunteering in Mexico when he received a request for an 18 month-old girl with a prescription of +9.0 sph. At first he thought it had to a mistake. He figured the person in question must be 81 or 18 at least. He sought out the mother and was shocked to meet a baby who was essentially blind.

When Regina Sharp, a member of the LensCrafters Marketing Team, arrived in Laos, she met a teenage women with -13.00 eyesight who wept for joy when she put her glasses on for the first time. Two years later, when Regina’s one year-old daughter required a pair of glasses, Regina was so grateful to have her eyes corrected early so she’d be able to see the world in all it’s beauty.
LensCrafters has always offered free fittings and adjustments, but when Melissa Standridge from Mobil, AL, realized guests would pay, she offered up an alternative: Ask customers if they’d like to make a donation to OneSight, instead. Since then, Cents for Sight has raised more than 5 million dollars for those in need.
Cleaning. Reading. Cooking. Imagine all the things you do on a daily basis that require little thought or effort—because you can see. Now imagine doing those things without your sight. That was how Marokey, a 35 year-old mother of four in The Gambia, was living until she became OneSight’s 8 millionth patient.
In the past, our regional clinics required two weeks for delivery of eyewear. Which is why LensCrafters associate rallied to cover the costs of EyeVan, a 40-foot state-of-the-art production vehicle that travels across America to manufacture eyewear on the spot.
