Warby Parker

Warby Parker, founded by a group of former Wharton students, is offering stylish eyewear at an affordable price--$95 per pair. That includes your lenses. Every pair of glasses--frames and lenses--sells for $95. You may ask how this is possible. First, they design their own line of frames. Second, they sell them directly to you.
You may request up to five frames to try on with no obligation to buy. They will be shipped to you for no charge. Return them within seven days and there's still no charge. Problems? The four founders are part of the customer service team. Your satisfaction is tantamount.
And here's the best part. In addition to offering stylish, vintage-inspired lines of frames for men and women, Warby Parker (the brand's name is an amalgamation of the names of some Kerouac characters) also aims to give back. For every pair of glasses you buy, they give a pair to someone in need through a partnership with the non-profit RestoringVision.
