New York-based Warby Parker has helped glasses become trendier than they've ever been. Founders Andrew Hunt, Dave Gilboa, Jeffrey Raider, and Neil Blumenthal came together to launch the e-commerce site in 2010. Warby Parker is also philanthropic in nature, promising to donate a pair of glasses to a child in need whenever a pair is purchased on the site.
Warby Parker's trendy designs are now available in the company's new brick and mortar stores.
