Luxottica data breach exposes 820K EyeMed, LensCrafters patients

Luxottica has suffered a data breach in their appointment scheduling application revealing the information of 829,454 patients at LensCrafters, Target Optical, EyeMed, and more. This breach occurred back on August 5, 2020, and Luxottica then became aware of the breach on August 9, 2020. An investigation was immediately launched, and by August 28, 2020, Luxottica determined that hackers may have accessed and acquired patient information. This information includes things like a patient’s full name, contact information, appointment date and time, healthy insurance policy number, and doctor/appointment notes that can include eye care treatment, prescriptions, health conditions, or procedures. Credit card numbers and SSN were also exposed for some patients. Luxottica is offering a free two-year identity monitoring service through Kroll. Luxottica is advising all affected patients to look out for notices from their health insurers or health providers, and to monitor their statements and accounts for any fraudulent activity. All affected users should have been contacted by now through email. Luxottica is encouraging any patient who hasn’t received an email, but is concerned that their information was stolen, to call them. For more information, feel free to check out the link below.
