Prescription eyeglasses can be boring, unless a person wants to fork over a small fortune on designer frames; the Eyewear Kit provides a more creative and affordable solution. The Eyewear Kit revolves around customized 3D printed frames that are then fitted with specialized lenses that range from sun lenses for €29.00 (about $40) to polarized and transitions for €149.00 (about $200).

In addition to the wide range of colors and specifications the Eyewear Kit provides customers with, it is now offering a collection of designer frames crafted by Michiel Cornelissen. From intricate latticework to armless eyeglasses, each of his designs is made using Shapeways technology.

All of the unique Eyewear Kit frames are made out of polyamide, which is an extremely durable and somewhat flexible material that is made to last.
