American Glasses - The Best of Two Worlds

Despite offering a variety of choices for the customer, our all-inclusive prices give the highest-possible transparency and results in only five different final price points.

American Glasses, a new online retailer for prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, revolutionizes the eyewear market with its unique 3D try-on tool. Now available at, this innovative tool will show, via webcam, what frames actually look like when the customer wears them. Customers no longer have to rely on an optometrist or photo compositions for advice on what looks good. With this 3D tool, customers can shop from the convenience of their own home and still be able to see how individual frames fit from all angles. In addition, the webcam views can even be shared via social media; feedback on Facebook turns family and friends into personal shopping assistants.

American Glasses features more than 500 frames. Models come in variety of popular styles, like academic or retro, and are available as sunglasses, reading glasses or sports eyewear. The frames are produced using high-quality materials such as acetate, metal and titanium.

"We see ourselves as a real alternative to an optometrist visit. This is why we also offer progressive lenses, sports eyewear, photochromic and polarized lenses, and classic products such as single-vision eyeglasses and sunglasses," describes Jasper, the founder behind the product range and concept of American Glasses. "Despite offering a variety of choices for the customer, our all-inclusive prices give the highest-possible transparency and results in only five different final price points."

American Glasses offers single-vision glasses for the all-inclusive price of $89. For sunglasses, with or without prescription lenses, customers may choose from a range of 29 lens colors and shades – from cobalt blue to cat gray. The customer’s choice of lens color is already included in the price. Features such as thin and light lenses ranging from an index of 1.50 to 1.74 (depending on the personal need of the customer), premium anti-reflective coating, premium scratch-resistant lenses, LotuTec coating, UV 400 protection and shipping costs are also inclusive.

“By combining high quality frames found at your optometrist’s with the fair prices of online shopping, we want to give our customers the best of two worlds,” summarizes Katharina who founded the company’s business model. “This applies to the eyewear at American Glasses. Our prescription glasses are medical products and fashion accessories at the same time."
