LensCrafters to Pay $39 Million to Settle a Lawsuit Over Accufit Technology Claims

LensCrafters agreed to pay $39 million to settle a lawsuit by prescription eyeglass customers who accused the eyewear chain of misleading them about how well its Accufit technology could measure their eyes.

A preliminary settlement of the nearly six-year-old class- action lawsuit was filed on Monday night in federal court in Brooklyn, and requires a judge’s approval.

LensCrafters was accused of violating New York, California and Florida consumer protection laws by saying Accufit was five times more precise, down to 1/10th of a millimeter, than other measurement methods, and gave customers “clearer, crisper vision” to let them “see the world more clearly.”
