Time to focus in 2018. Focusing on goals and setting intentions is great, but we’re talking about focusing on your vision. Like, your actual vision. If you grew up with less than perfect vision then you know first hand the enormous hassle and expense of buying new frames. The cost alone may have even compelled you to nix glasses altogether and go straight to contacts, which again is still not cheap, but at least it spares you the agony of going to try on frame after frame and never really leave with what you wanted. And remember the terrible lighting, boring designs and the awkward pressure from the sale associates? More often than not you would leave the store with a frame looked so-so on your face and empty pockets. Sadly, back then that was the only reality, but not anymore! What if I told you could find an affordable and very stylish frame and all from the comfort of your own home? Sounds to good to be true right? Well it’s not, it’s Warby Parker!

You may already know about Warby Parker and if you do, then you already know how amazing the product is – have you checked out the latest collection? If not, Shop Warby Parker’s Resort Collection . For those of you who are new to Warby Parker, it’s designer eyewear set at very affordable price and it’s leading the way for socially conscious businesses and here’s why.

Warby Parker offers a home try on program where you can select 5 frames to test out at home for 5 days and Warby Parker will cover shipping both ways. This alone was a very attractive feature but to top it off, Warby also honors a “Buy a pair, Give a Pair”, which means at the end of each month Warby Parker tallies up the number of glasses sold and they then make a monthly donation to non-profits like VisionSpring, to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. To put into more perspective, one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work and Warby Parker is helping to address this problem! AND when you make a purchase, that means you too are helping address this problem too! So go you! Another awesome feature, did you know you can also order these with your Flexible Spending Account (FSA)?

Warby believes that buying glasses should be easy and fun and it should leave you happy, good-looking and with money in your pocket all while helping those in need, now tell me that’s something that you too could also get behind? Below I’m wearing the Chamberlain frame in jet black which I purchased a while back and I absolutely love the fit and look. With a fresh year ahead, I have my eyes on  Hughes Smalls in Jasmine Crystal which are pictured below.

We’re super excited about our partnership with Warby Parker and we’re excited to find more focus in 2018, one frame at a time!
