About Old

Waveborn is an active luxury sunglasses company. Every frame is handcrafted by artisans in Milan, Italy using a blend of lightweight but durable polymers for superior strength and comfort. Waveborn combines excellent frames with top of the line lenses manufactured by Carl Zeiss. All Waveborn frames are Rx-able and can hold prescription lenses. Not only do we produce the highest quality sunglasses on the planet, but at the core of our business is our Giving Model. Waveborn works with non-profit partners, Unite for Sight and Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International, to donate prescription eyeglasses and fund sight-restoring cataract surgeries around the globe.

Surgical Eye Expedition (SEE) International provides sustainable medical, surgical, and educational services through volunteer ophthalmic surgeons with the objectives of restoring sight and preventing blindness to disadvantaged individuals worldwide. SEE International is the link that connects volunteer ophthalmologists to host clinic sites that are in desperate need of help alleviating the overwhelming numbers of people living in states of blindness around the world. SEE International organizes the clinics and provides most of the equipment and supplies that are needed. SEE’s volunteer eye surgeons donate their time and pay for all their own travel expenses. During each clinic (approximately five days long), sight is typically restored to 50 to 200 people.

Offered in fifteen different models, Waveborn boasts Italian handcrafted frames made from cellulose propionate, the most durable, lightweight material used for sunglasses and eyeglasses available on the market today. Our polarized lenses are created by Carl Zeiss, a leader in the optical industry who is known for their camera lenses and Hubble telescopes. We offer a one year warranty on all of our sunglasses, giving you peace of mind if your pair is lost, damaged, or stolen. Through our commitment to customer experience and satisfaction, Waveborn prides ourselves in the ability to surprise and delight as one of the company’s core values.
