91% of all glasses are still sold in retail optic shops but Dear Dear Eyewear is a start-up that's on a mission to change how eyewear is sold by offering innovative custom styles with 3D printing and online model. With its 3D-printed glasses, the brand aims to offer styles to suit all styles and give consumers the ability to personalize pairs to match their personality.
Dear Dear Eyewear uses both augmented reality and 3D printing to create lightweight styles that can be modified as desired with different frame shapes and colored lenses. The customization process begins by choosing a base model, some of which are rounder and others that are more rectangular, plus a color of choice.
