EyeBuyDirect.com is an online prescription eyeglasses retailer that serves customers throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.

"EyeTry" enables online browsers to upload a photo and virtually experiment with thousands of frame and color selections.

Now the author of that book has another book that will probably also be a best-seller. I enjoyed Grant's story about how he didn't invest in a new company because they still didn't have their website together a day before their launch. The company is now Warby-Parker , founded in 2010 by four Wharton MBA graduates (Grant teaches at Wharton).
