For Christmas I treated myself to a new pair of glasses and all those close to me have given me so many compliments on them. My last pair was on its last breath after 3 years of world travel. My friend Aimee mentioned to me about a company that donates a pair of glasses to someone in need for each pair you purchase from them. Awesome.
That company is Warby Parker.
The cool thing about them is that they allow you home test 5 pairs of glasses you are interested in for free! Once you pick one (or 2) that you like, you send it back and get to order whatever pair (with prescription) that you like!
From their website:
“We believe that everyone has the right to see. Unfortunately, millions of people around the world today don’t have access to proper vision care. To help address this problem, Warby Parker partners with renowned non-profits, such as VisionSpring.org, to deliver one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair that we sell. In doing so, we enable you to share the gift of vision with someone who can’t see today and give them the opportunity to read, to work and to live a fuller life.”
If you are in the market for a new pair of frames. I would definitely suggest going with Warby Parker.
