Warby Parker and UnitedHealthcare Collaboration to Feature Affordable, Designer Prescription Eyewear

MINNETONKA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--People enrolled in UnitedHealthcare employer-sponsored and individual vision plans can access Warby Parker’s designer prescription eyewear at affordable prices, online or at any of the more than 50 stores nationwide, beginning in 2018. This marks the first time Warby Parker is accepting vision insurance, and will enable millions of people to purchase prescription eyewear for only their copay.

“Warby Parker is constantly exploring new ways to provide people access to affordable, high-quality and fashionable eyewear,” said Dave Gilboa, co-founder and co-CEO of Warby Parker. “We look forward to working with UnitedHealthcare, nationwide, to enable millions of Americans to purchase their eyewear at a fraction of the price they might pay through traditional channels.”

As people now enter the open enrollment season for 2018 health benefits, this new relationship will help meet the eye-care needs for UnitedHealthcare plan participants nationwide.

“Warby Parker and UnitedHealthcare will help more Americans access designer eyewear at affordable prices to help meet the eye-care needs of the people we serve,” said Tom Wiffler, CEO, UnitedHealthcare Specialty Benefits. “We are grateful Warby Parker selected UnitedHealthcare to be its first in-network vision plan.”

About Warby Parker
Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. Every idea starts with a problem. Theirs was simple: glasses are too expensive. By circumventing traditional channels, designing glasses in-house, and engaging with customers directly, they’re able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear starting at $95 (a fraction of the going price).

Warby Parker also believes that everyone has the right to see. Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work. To help address this problem, Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
