We spent last Monday in Jamaica giving vision tests and fitting adults with reading glasses. We saw 250 patients. We gave out 180 pairs of reading glasses and referred 70 patients for advanced screenings.
Brett Leve and Thayer Walker. This was the 2nd station to test
Warby Parker founder Neil Blumenthal. Warby Parker sells trendy / high end glasses for under $100 (Neil is wearing them above). With each pair they sell, they give a pair of reading glasses to someone less fortunate around the world.
We are fans of companies like TOMS, FEED Projects and Warby Parker who have added giving to their business models.
