Lensabl Offers Direct-to-Consumer Prescription Replacements

Unfortunately for those with less than perfect vision, getting prescription lenses in a pair of stylish frames can be an expensive hassle, and that's exactly the inconvenience that Lensabl is trying to eliminate with its new service. The company recently announced that it will offer a direct-to-consumer online prescription lens replacement service, allowing those looking for a new set of frames to bypass opticians and brick-and-mortar optical retailers.

The founders of Lensabl have been in the eyewear industry since 2013, when they began selling fashion forward frames through an online e-commerce model. That model gave them the ability to sell high fashion glasses for significantly less than brick-and-mortar competitors, and subsequently the company flourished. Now, Lensabl is taking its founders' direct-to-consumer learnings and applying them to lenses themselves, letting consumers purchase high quality lenses and custom frames from home and for half the cost of any competitor.
