EssilorLuxottica Eye Care is pleased to launch the inaugural year of our Financial Freedom Program, open to current second- and third-year optometry students.
Qualified students will have the opportunity for their remaining tuition to be fully funded upfront through our partnership with Stride Funding¹, and repaid either directly by EssilorLuxottica or through arrangements with independent optometry practices that operate within its retail stores—and launch their careers at a LensCrafters location upon graduation.²
Beginning your career at a LensCrafters retail location provides the chance for you to connect with patients, grow your optometry skillset, and utilize the latest in optometry technology, including LensCrafters’ proprietary CONNECT platform. You will gain experience by helping to support your practice and care for your patients, all while building your future with a top partner in the optometric industry.

¹ Loans will be issued by FinWise Bank, a Utah-chartered bank, Member FDIC. All loans are subject to individual approval and adherence to underwriting guidelines. Program restrictions, other terms, and conditions apply.
² EssilorLuxottica Eye Care or one of the independent optometry practices that operates within Lenscrafters will pay back one (1) year of funding for 1.5 years worked for the employer or two (2) years of funding for 3 years worked for the employer. In case of voluntary employment termination, students will pay the remaining outstanding amount. Students are personally responsible for the financial obligations under the loan agreement. Any agreement between student and employer sponsor is entirely separate from the loan obligation and will not in any way offset student’s obligations to FinWise unless payments are made by student or any other party on student’s behalf.
