U.S.Vision Announces Hurricane Relief at Local JCPenney Optical Stores

Efforts will help residents in Southwest Florida with immediate eyewear needs.

BLACKWOOD, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–U.S.Vision, a leading retailer of optical products and services, has announced a temporary program to help Florida residents in the wake of Hurricane Ian’s destruction in that state’s southwest region. Now through October 21, seven JCPenney Optical stores in the region will offer streamlined options for replacement of current eyewear, as well as deep discounts for new customers in need of eyewear assistance.

“Although only a small token, we want to offer assistance to those with eyecare-related needs,” said Eric J. Bertrand, Chairman, U.S.Vision. “With dozens of stores across the state – and seven in the areas most significantly impacted by the storm – we can provide quick access to an important healthcare service.”

The relief initiative includes options for both current patients and new customers with a need to replace their glasses. All orders will be eligible for free shipping to eliminate the return trip for order pickup.

Current customers who opted into the U.S.Vision Eyewear Protection Plan (EPP) at time of initial purchase can order replacement eyeglasses for half off their normal copays; customers who initially waived the EPP option can retroactively purchase the plan for a nominal fee and immediately take advantage of these discounted copay options as well.

For new customers, participating locations will provide 70% off retail prices on nearly all frames and lenses to deliver an immediate, low-cost solution to those most in need. Children ages 17 and under will also be eligible for a free pair.

To qualify for these temporary relief offers, customers must provide a valid Rx and proof of address by either license, state ID, or online copy of official mail such as a utility bill or credit card statement.

Offers are available in the following JCPenney Optical locations for a limited time:

Port Charlotte Town Center (Port Charlotte, FL)

Coastland Shopping Center (Naples, FL)

Sarasota Square Mall (Sarasota, FL)

Tyrone Square (St. Petersburg, FL)

Countryside Mall (Clearwater, FL)

Florida Mall (Orlando, FL)

Altamonte Mall (Altamonte Springs, FL)
