LensCrafters is a Mason, Ohio-based retailer of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, eyeglass repairs and contact lenses. It is a subsidiary of the Italian company Luxottica, along with Sunglass Hut International and Pearle Vision Center.

LensCrafters is the largest optical retailer in the U.S. Major competitors are National Vision, U.S. Vision, and Eye Care Centers of America.

LensCrafters’ major impact on the field of vision care is their ability to manufacture prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses at the retail location; in most cases, LensCrafters succeeds in doing this in about an hour.

The LensCrafters culture places a premium on high energy, customer service focused and enthusiastic people. The retail vision business is primarily driven by sales, so the ability to relate well to people from diverse walks of life is highly valuable.
