Warby Parker in Westside was founded with a goal to design great eyewear at a reasonable price. They design their glasses in-house, and engage with their customers directly.
The company claims that almost one billion people in the world do not have access to glasses, so 15% of the population can’t effectively learn or work. Therefore, Warby Parker has partnerships with non-profits such as VisionSpring. They strive to be a socially conscious business, by giving a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need for every pair they sell.
