Your eyes are the windows to your soul, which is why they must be cared for. Warby Parker offers glasses that are meant to keep your eyes protected and healthy. They offer a variety of frames that fit every face shape and size which is perfect for someone like me who has a very small head. At checkout, you can include your prescription or have them install blue – light lenses for digital protection.

Warby Parker was founded to offer you high quality glasses at an affordable cost. What makes them different is that they allow you to order five pairs to try on at home – for free! They partner with VisionSpring in their Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program which lets them donate a pair of glasses for each Warby pair you purchase. Together, they are empowering young children and adults who are in need of glasses.

We’re so Smitten!

I can't possibly write any more about this genius company that hasn't already been written, so I'm going to keep it simple:

Simply put, Warby Parker is a singular, stylish, spirited and socially conscious brand of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, American made and founded in 2010 by Neil Blumenthal, Andrew Hunt, David Gilboa, and Jeffrey Raider.

While in college together, they collectively agreed that glasses were costly. With some research they discovered that the eyewear industry was dominated by one company that could keep prices high and reap egregious profits. They wanted to create an alternative. The goal became: completely affordable eyewear...at rebellious prices...while paving a way for socially conscious business practices.

Cool.

Slightly less than a billion of the world's population lack access to prescription eyewear. To help with this statistic, Warby Parker partnered with not-for-profit VisionSpring, that distribute a pair of glasses to a person in need for every pair sold.

This is just a truly magnificent, beacon of a company.

Smitten.
