Making An Impact
There are 228 million people in the world who are needlessly blind or visually impaired. Over half of global blindness is due to cataracts, a condition that can be surgically reversed in 30 minutes. Our charitable partners are leading the fight to end preventable blindness and restore opportunity for all. When you wear Waveborns you are helping to change how someone sees the world.
About SEE International
SEE International is a 501(c)3 with a mission to restore sight and prevent blindness in disadvantaged individuals worldwide. They do this by providing sustainable medical, surgical, and educational services and deploying small surgical clinics in cooperation with local health authorities.
Since 1974 SEE International has examined 3 million patients and performed 400,000 sight-restoring surgeries.
Protecting Your Vision
Waveborn sunglasses don't just do good for others - they're great for you too! Our handcrafted Italian frames are made in Milan from cellulose propionate, a super strong but lightweight plastic that feels great to wear.
Our lenses are made by Carl Zeiss Optics, the world leader in lenses and the manufacturer of the Hubble Space Telescope optics. These lenses make Waveborns the clearest pair of sunglasses you'll ever own. Stylize with our mirrored and colored lenses, or go polarized to reduce glare.
