Waveborn is an active luxury sunglasses company. Their sunglasses are handcrafted in Milan, Italy and come in a variety of unique models and colors with UV, mirror, and polarized lenses by Carl Zeiss. Their B2B sales channels have expanded in 2014 to include surf shops, boutiques, and eye doctors across the globe.

For every pair of Waveborns sold, they donate one pair of prescription eyeglasses to Unite for Sight or fund a sight restoring cataract surgery via SEE International.

In 2013, they donated more than 10,000 pairs of prescription glasses and funded more than 1,000 vision restoring surgeries. In 2014 they want to triple that number. With your help, they are confident they can achieve this goal, giving the gift of sight to individuals in Nicaragua, Ghana, and India.
