LensCrafters Takes a Stand for Quality Vision Care with Global Advertising Campaign Launching Sunday, February 2, 2014

Bold New Advertising Pulls at Viewers’ Emotions and Illuminates the Role that Eyes and Vision Play in Total Life Experience

MASON, Ohio--()--LensCrafters is proud to launch a global creative campaign that will encourage consumers to stop and marvel at the vital role that eyes play in their emotional life, personal identity and overall health. The campaign, entitled “Take a Stand for Quality Vision Care”, will communicate LensCrafters’ passion for celebrating the eye and acting as a partner in total vision care—the synergy of trusted eye care and exceptional eyewear. LensCrafters is the North American representation of the Eye Love global retail brand family that also includes LensCrafters China (China), OPSM (Australia) and GMO (South America). The campaign launches for LensCrafters on Sunday, February 2 and on behalf of LensCrafters China and GMO in March 2014.

“Take a Stand for Quality Vision Care” will prompt the viewer to reconsider the eyewear retail category and who they trust to care for their eyes. It will inspire the public to seek a qualified partner who understands the importance of the eye, not only to vision, but also to the entire life experience. The campaign features striking imagery paired with bold, provocative language that pulls at the emotional essence of eyes and the preciousness of sight. It expresses the experience of staring deep into someone’s eyes and getting lost, finding their humanity and gauging their spirit.

Owned by Luxottica—the leader in premium, luxury and sports eyewear—LensCrafters is the leading provider of truly complete vision care. The brand offers experts in vision care, including eye doctors and skilled opticians; personalized experience from knowledgeable staff aided by proprietary technologies, and a comprehensive selection of high-quality and name brand eyewear.

“The new campaign is more than a new creative direction—it is a common vision for our brand to make sure that everyone who sets foot in our stores leaves seeing what they love and loving what they see,” says Eric Anderson, SVP & GM LensCrafters. “We accomplish this by offering the latest technologies for fitting and selecting glasses and the highest quality name brand eyewear. This campaign challenges people to think about how they care for their sight and who they trust to help them along the way.”

“Take a Stand for Quality Vision Care” focuses on five key stories:

  • Why a Tenth of a Millimeter is Massive: Precision measurements matter. Just a tenth of a millimeter’s discrepancy in placing your prescription can mean the difference between seeing clearly and enduring blurry vision. LensCrafters ensures every prescription is placed with AccuFit®, an exclusive digital scanning system that measures eyes five times more precisely than traditional methods, down to a tenth of a millimeter. This means LensCrafters can craft lenses more accurately and help their customers see the world more clearly.
  • We Listen to Eyes: Eye exams should do more than assess prescriptions. At LensCrafters, independent doctors of optometry are able to look deep into eyes with state-of-the-art AccuExam technology to learn about eye health and even overall wellness.
  • Be Clear: A trusted partner serves as a guide in selecting eyewear that fits well and expresses the wearer’s personal style. LensCrafters provides myLook, an exclusive technology that allows customers to see photos of themselves in up to four different frames side-by-side and choose a frame with better confidence.
  • Invest Here: Vision is priceless. LensCrafters is the partner in total vision care offering both trusted eye care and exceptional eyewear.
  • All Glasses are Not Created Equal: LensCrafters offers precision you can see and quality you can feel with name brand eyewear and state-of-the-art lenses.

The campaign will run on television, print and digital platforms.
