We the PeopleThree score or so years ago, Jim was bound for Optometry school and the eyeglasses business. But then he saw a documentary TV show…and went into the music business to produce records, instead. The whole time…he wore eyeglasses.
Andy, having perfect vision – didn’t wear eyeglasses back then. He did, however, play the drums really well and it was at a recording session in San Francisco where they met and became great friends.
Destiny intervened when Andy’s eyesight began to fail. "What? $400 for a pair of glasses!" he exclaimed. From these humble beginnings... Greateyeglasses.com was born...
We have a lot in common: Friends, family, music, business (and we both wear glasses). Entrepreneurs to the core, we’ve been starting, growing and running businesses of one sort or another, our whole lives. We still both love playing music and continue to jam together when we have time.
We hold two truths to be self-evident (actually more than two, but...)
1.We believe that nobody should have to pay $400 for a pair of eyeglasses.That's why supporting music programs in our schools is so important to us.
2. Music is the language of the soul; a connection to the ethereal. It needs to be made available to children, each day, so that we may, as a society, get down and get funky!
We are both so incredibly lucky to have such great people working with us. We're spread out across several states and mostly work from our homes, where we are able to balance work and family. Our customer service reps are so nice, humorous and accommodating, it makes us wanna call them ourselves - just to be put in a great mood.
