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 well-respected organization."

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.

Visionworks is the Official Eyewear Retailer of the PGA TOUR and Champions Tour. To learn more about Visionworks, visit, and use the store locator to find a Visionworks store near you.
