PHOENIX --(Business Wire)--

The sponsorship announcement comes on the heels of the San Antonio,
Texas-based retailer's recent rebranding of its stores across the United
States, including 17 Visionworks stores (formerly EyeMasters) in the
Greater Phoenix area. Brighter in layout and appearance, the redesigned
stores offer a larger selection of contemporary eye wear styles at a
great value and with even better service. In other words, 'The most
frames, the best people and the right prices'-the culmination of
Visionworks' "A Better You" brand promise.
"At Visionworks, we are very passionate about supporting the communities
where we do business," Jim Eisen, president of Visioworks, said. "In
addition to offering the best quality in vision care and eye wear
selection, we provide hundreds of jobs to the places we serve, and
strive to be involved in causes that are important to those communities.
The PGA TOUR provides a way for us to support several deserving
charities and we are grateful for the partnership with this
Visionworks representatives will be on-site at the Waste Management
Phoenix Open Expo Center during the tournament, providing free vision
screenings as well as eye care information and a "family of eye wear"
giveaway. Visionworks also will provide hundreds of vouchers for a free
eye exam and a pair of glasses to children who are participating in the
R.S. Hoyt Jr. Family Foundation Dream Day, a program that gives school
children a chance to experience the PGA TOUR firsthand.
Visionworks plans to participate in additional PGA TOUR events
throughout the year, in addition to the company's existing sponsorship
agreements with individual PGA TOUR athletes.
