warby parker.

9 Jan

I just discovered an almost unbelievable eyewear website.  The company, Warby Parker, designs, manufactures and ships their eye glasses themselves.  Effectively cutting out the middleman means that each pair of glasses is only $95 and that INCLUDES prescription, poly-carbonate, anti-glare lenses…and free shipping (duh).  You can either enter your prescription yourself at checkout, or give Warby Parker your eye doctor’s info and the company will obtain your prescription on your behalf.

Maybe the best part, though, (if you can beat cheap, stylish, no hassle glasses via the internet!) is that for each pair sold, Warby Parker donates a pair to someone in need.

I just got new glasses (Banana Republic frames) that were not too expensive and that I totally adore, so just consider this a public service announcement.  I simply couldn’t believe it…

    a couple years back i bought three pairs of glasses from a similar site for $45 — including my first pair of prescription sunglasses! http://www.zennioptical.com/

    not sure how the styles or whatever compare, but either way they are both fine sites.

What do you think?
