Need Blind: Vision Spring and Warby Parker Shake Up Eyewear With Impact
Two social enterprises partner to battle unfair eyewear markup, bringing affordable glasses to Brooklyn hipsters and Indian farmers alike. VisionSpring, a nonprofit social enterprise, focuses on selling low-cost glasses to people earning between $1 and $4 per day. Warby Parker, a for-profit B-Corp, sells affordable eyewear in the domestic market while donating a pair of frames to VisionSpring for each pair it sells.

“It didn’t make sense to us that a pair of glasses costs as much as an iPhone,” says Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal.
