Toms eyewear BelmontIn 2006, after a visit to a poor village in Argentina, Blake Mycoskie founded TOMS shoes with the dream of creating a business based on the idea of One for One – for every pair of shoes purchased, he would donate one pair of shoes to someone in need. The business model has quickly taken off and turned into a global movement. With the success of the shoe business, Blake recognized that One for One could be applied to more than shoes so he developed TOMS Eyewear to help give sight to those in need.

Since 2011, 150,000 people in over 10 countries have had their sight restored through TOMS Eyewear purchases, which have provided prescription glasses, medical treatment and/or sight-saving surgery. Purchases of TOMS Eyewear also help to support sustainable community-based eye care programs, create professional jobs and provide basic eye care training to local health volunteers and teachers.

The best part is, just like TOMS shoes, you’ll want to wear TOMS Eyewear for its’ fashionably great sense of style. TOMS Eyewear is inspired by iconic and vintage style, from wayfarer-inspired Classics to pilot frames to historic over-sized lenses.
