Four years ago, we took a leap of faith and stepped outside of the contact lens world we'd known for over two decades. We decided that the time was right to do for glasses what we did for contacts—provide customers with an online shopping experience that guaranteed great quality eyewear and service that has since been called stellar. (We couldn't forgo the humble brag.) We jumped into the idea with both feet, and it's been a spectacular ride ever since. Glasses, sunglasses, reading glasses, computer glasses—if your eyes needed it, we wanted to get it to you at the lowest cost possible.
When people hear the term 20/20, they generally imagine perfect vision—but that's not quite the case. Having 20/20 vision means that you can stand twenty feet from one of those iconic eye charts topped with the big E and successfully read the fourth line from the bottom without the aid of contacts or glasses. And while we aren't suggesting that this isn't a pretty significant feat—what it means is that you have amazingly normal vision.
In a perfect world, all children would be born with 20/20 vision and grow up with healthy eyes. The reality is nearly 48% of all children require some sort of vision correction, either with prescription glasses or contacts, by the time they are 17 years of age. The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends that babies have their first eye exam between 6 to 12 months of age, even if there are no apparent issues.
