We all know it to be true; having to wear eyeglasses has never been more desirable. When I was in grade school, receiving news from a professional that you needed minor assistance with your vision hardly elicited any excitement or even the acceptance that it does today. We can all collectively thank the hipster for making glasses cool again, really.
The more popular a product becomes, the more expensive it gets, which is a downside to supply and demand for the consumer. When it comes to eyewear, a vision exam and the most basic pair of specs will run you close to five-hundred dollars--especially if you're going for anything remotely stylish. This is just one of the prime reasons why Warby Parker has become the go-to for all things bespectacled. The
company was created by a rebellious few that were determined to offer affordable, great-looking eyewear simply and honestly because, well, that just didn't exist yet. Today, Warby Parker has boutiques in New York, Boston and LA, and their continued growth is of colossal proportions. But it's not solely about their seriously stylish frames at legendary low costs that makes this newish brand a leader in eyewear, it's also their company stance on helping those in need of glasses across the globe. Warby Parker partnered with VisionSpring to aid the millions of people in the world with the ability to see better. For every pair of glasses sold, the company provides a pair to those in need.
Fashion and style doesn't always have to be so unattainable. Warby Parker gets it. And we, in return, get Warby Parker.
