Back in the day when I first started wearing glasses, I found every reason that I could to not wear them. From squinting to contact lenses, I did just about anything so that my frames would stay sitting on the shelf.
Twenty years later and here I am, in love with my eyeglasses. The convenience, the time (not spent sticking things into my eyes or cleaning things out of them), the style... it just all works for me now.
The only thing that doesn't? Cheap lenses. Having never paid as much attention to the lenses as the style and color of the frames, I didn't realize what a difference they could make and have always just put up with the scratches, smudges, and glare.
But, now having been introduced to Crizal lenses by Essilor, it's not hard to understand why they are worn and trusted by more than 260 million people all over the world.
By reducing glare, scratches, smudges, dust and water, Crizal lenses provide you with clearer vision... and who doesn't want that? You're able to see better (particularly at nighttime), look better (no worries that people are looking at your glasses more than they're looking at you), and feel better (fewer headaches and less eye fatigue caused by reflections from computer screens and daytime lights).
The differences between traditional and Crizal lenses are truly impressive!
Along with providing a high quality product, Crizal has now launched a fun way for you to eliminate the enemies of clear vision in a creative way: the Combat the Enemies of Clear Vision with Captain Crizal Facebook game.
Not only is this an entertaining game, but a great sweepstakes! By collecting Crizal Power Lenses while dodging various obstacles, you'll have the opportunity win prizes while supporting eye health.
