This past Sunday I went to Lencrafters to look into sunglasses since it was the last day of their 40% off sale according to the details in the ad. I wanted to go with Varilux Physio Enhanced since this is what I use in my everyday glasses and they have been the best performing progressive lenses I have had. I decided to get a pair of Ray Ban frames. Here is what my receipt says:
40% sale discount -58.38
Lens Packages 1225.00
40% sale discount -490.00
Crizal Alize AR S36 PKG
Polarized Grey PKG
1 year protection 29.99
I apparently wasn't thinking straight that day since I should have questioned the $1225.00 retail price of the lenses. Even with the sale discount, the price is $735 for the lenses. I have never spent that much for Varilux lenses even at independent Optometrists. eyeglasslensdirect.com even shows the full retail at $612 with their discount price of $301. There is a $75 charge for adding the Crizal anti reflection with still only brings it up to $376. http://www.eyeglasslensdirect.com/Physio-Enhanced-Polycarbonate-Polarized-p/pvpe58po.htm
I have a couple of choices.
1. Call Lenscrafters and cancel my order and ask for a refund. They said it would be about 2 weeks to get the lenses in.
2. Wait for the lenses and see if they will match the retail price and then apply the 40% discount. If they will not match the price then take advantage of the 90 day unconditional guarantee and get a refund.
Any comments would be appreciated.
