We're Matching Customer Donations To Breast Cancer Research

Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Payne Glasses

Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Payne Glasses

Starting At Orders Totalling $20 Or More

[October 2018] We got into the business to help others. It started with offering quality prescription eyeglasses at factory prices so our customers could buy affordable eyewear, now it’s expanded into donating to medical research. Through the month of October, our customers can add $1, $3, or $5 donations towards The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to their every purchase in our online store. For orders totalling over $20, we'll match the donation 100%.

For us, this was a natural step. Eyeglasses are an accessibility device, leveling the playfield for millions to live, work, and play. We set out to offer a variety of lenses at manufacturers’ prices so they are accessible to all—ranging from high-index lenses for heavy prescriptions, blue blockers to protect eyes from LED-lit devices, photochromic lenses that transition to dark tints in UV light, progressive lenses, and more. And since eyewear has also become a bold fashion statement, we balanced this ambitious business model with offering today’s most fashionable frame styles.

But it’s about more than eyewear accessibility and fashion, it’s about the whole picture. We believe in everyone’s vision—whether it be your eyesight or your ambitions and dreams.

According to, about 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime, and about 1 in 1,000 men. A cancer diagnosis can feel like a harrowing life event, where time stops and dreams come crashing down. To combat a disease that affects so many, we must bolster the tireless scientists and technicians who pour countless hours into research labs. New methods of breast cancer detection, treatment, and prevention will better the lives of family members, loved ones, and neighbors. Funding research means saving lives. This is why we're raising donations for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) this October—it’s about people helping people, and Payne got into this business for this reason. Together, we’ll make the world a bit brighter. (
