Just In Time: Prescription Eyewear Named After Presidents

It goes without saying that we've got presidents on the brain lately — but, as it turns out, we're not the only ones. The latest entrant into the online-prescription-eyewear game is Benji Frank, which boasts a bounty of frame styles named after American presidents. Feeling brassy? Try the Kennedy. Prefer to keep it old school? Slip on the Eisenhower or the Hoover. You can choose from basic glasses or sunnies (with polarized Optics by Carl Zeiss Vision lenses), and each pair rings up at $100.
In the spirit of charity, Benji Frank rewards every purchase by donating a pair of glasses or supplies for cataract surgery to Operation Eyesight Universal or Sightsavers. You can try on frames virtually using a photo of yourself, then choose five options to try on at home for five days. Smart, stylish, financially savvy — what more could you want in a president, or a pair of glasses?
