September 2017: Three class-action lawsuits were filed against LensCrafters for allegedly falsely advertising its Accufit® Digital Measurement System, a system that measures the pupillary distance (the distance between the centers of the pupils). The complaints allege that the company falsely represents that Accufit® “measures your eyes five times more precisely than traditional methods, down to a tenth of a millimeter” and with “five times greater precision than traditional methods” when, according to plaintiffs, LensCrafters uses a “decades-old technology” and manual measurements that must be rounded up to a full millimeter.
