Warby Parker is creating a thriving business with products sold at a fraction of the price of mainstream retailers.

Innovative eyewear start-up Warby Parker is disrupting the industry structure and changing how people buy glasses. The online brand, a collaboration between four friends from business school, sells directly to the public and avoids brick-and-mortar retail expenses, middlemen and traditional channels. This allows them to offer prescription glasses for just $95, a fraction of the price charged by the mainstream eyewear market. Warby Parker also partners with non-profit organizations such as VisionSpring to donate one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair sold.

Mashable has an interview with Warby Parker’s co-founder and co-CEO Dave Gilboa about how the company is disrupting the eyewear industry, which you can view below:
