When you’re buying a pair of glasses (sunglasses or prescription lenses), you’re on a mission to find superior quality and style at a cost that you can realistically afford.

Let’s be real, spending $700 on sunglasses to end up losing them a week later would be a minor tragedy. It would haunt you. We get it.

Luckily, Vancouver-based online retailer Oxford & Kin (previously Kingsley Eyewear) has got you covered with an amazing selection of handmade glasses and sunglasses for under $200 (including prescription lenses).

But this isn’t your ordinary eyewear retailer. Oxford & Kin was founded and operated by an award-winning optometrist who cares about making high-quality, hand-made glasses with a strong focus on social responsibility.

That’s why every pair of glasses sold by the brand gives someone in a developing part of the world a full eye exam and a pair of glasses.

“As an optometrist, I have volunteered in vision clinics around North and South America, so I have seen first-hand the importance of providing vision care in impoverished areas.

“Our collaboration with Optometry Giving Sight allows us to help people who don’t have access to the care they deserve,” says the founder of Oxford & Kin, Dr. Harbir Sian.
