Attention 20/20 challenged brethren: We have some excellent news. Warby Parker, just in time for summer, has launched prescription sunglasses. We've been waiting for this day for forever it seems.

Warby Parker, for those who haven't bought from the brand, donates a pair of glasses to someone in need for each $95 pair bought (the price includes anti-reflective prescriptive lenses). The new sunglasses, which retail for $150 (prescription, $95 without), have a vintage design, polarized prescription lenses with UVA/UVB protection, and the frames are custom acetate from a renowned Italian company. In other words, they're chic. And, in true Warby fashion, a pair of eyeglasses will be donated for each pair sold.

We love when giving back also makes us look good (and see better!).

Sunglasses, $150 each. Available at
