A Visionary Company - Warby Parker

I love to discover companies that truly show passion and commitment through the products they offer and throughout the ideology they transmit. A few weeks ago, I discovered this new brand of eyeglasses: Warby Parker. This company has only been on the market for four years and their philosophy is that glasses shouldn’t be an expensive hard-to-purchase product. The owners of this company, believe that glasses besides offering an innovative and Avant-garde style, should have an accessible price.

With this idea in mind, they discovered that by designing and producing their own glasses, they could also sell them directly to the consumer.  And by eliminating the intermediary, they could lower their price considerably. They only have stores in certain cities of the US besides their online store.

And when I read this, I was doubtful. How could I buy some eyeglasses online without even trying them on? Well, the thing is they offer a free Home-try-on service, which lets you choose five pairs of glasses online.  

Then they send them to your home at no charge, you have five days to try them on and choose your favorite pair. Then you return them also at no cost, you send them your prescription with the graduation you need and the pair you want to purchase, you pay them and that's it!

In a few days you get your new glasses in the mail.

To top it all, for every pair of glasses you purchase, Warby Parker donates a percentage of their sales to philanthropic organizations that train people to do eye exams in low income communities and they give the glasses at a really low cost. They are convinced that by just donating the glasses, they really don't solve the problem. That's why they prefer to create jobs and to offer products specifically designed for the needs of these areas.

If you are looking for a pair of glasses with a great design but don’t want to spend a fortune, Yo Mariana really recommend you this brand. Go to their website warbyparker.com where you'll find all the information you need to get your next pair of glasses.
