Waveborn changes how people see the world by selling high-quality Italian sunglasses and funding life changing cataract surgeries around the globe.

Making An Impact

Of the 285 million blind or visually impaired people around the world, 90% live in developing countries. More than half of all blindness is caused by cataracts, a condition that we can cure in 30 minutes! Our charitable partners are leading this fight to end preventable blindness and restore opportunity for all. When you wear Waveborns you help change how someone sees the world.
