As an eyeglass wearer, I know how hard it is to commit to that gorgeous pair of high-end glasses I’ve been eyeing. The price tag alone can make me want to run for the door and seek other options. Have you ever found the process of replacing a pair of broken or old glasses to be so unbearable? You’d instead go about your day with blurry vision than purchasing a new pair at the store?
What if I told you, you could purchase a stunning pair of eyeglasses at an affordable rate AND help animals at the same time, all from the comfort of your own home?
Do I have a surprise for you! Let me introduce you to the brand Fetch Eye wear!
Who Created Fetch Eye wear and Why?
Fetch Eye wear creator Ann Sacks set out to create an affordable and stylish set of reading glasses. After breaking a new pair of her own, she learned there weren’t many options for non-high end glasses that didn’t break the bank. All frames are designed by the Founder, Ann Sacks, with eyeglass wearers in mind. With her passion for business, animals, and style, Ann created Fetch Eye wear.
So how did a former Junior High School Teacher/Social Worker end up designing glasses? Ann Sacks founded Fetch eye wear when she set out to help people create an identity around the things they choose and the things they wear. Ann says, “In short, I think about people that I see today and how I might help them take one tiny step further toward loving their glasses rather than just wearing them.”
What Makes Fetch Eye wear So Special?

Top notch customer service
How often do you find you want to love a company and support it only to have a terrible customer service experience? Not with Fetch. From my original phone call regarding frame sizes to help with color choices and frame selection, Fetch’s staff was willing to help from throughout my entire process.

Information they’ll need from you to start
Fetch Eye wear requires your prescription information and your PD (papillary distance) measurement, which can be provided via email or fax. Most eyeglass prescriptions are valid for 1 or 2 years. Fetch does require a valid prescription to fulfill your order.
Papillary distance is the measurement in millimeters between the centers of your pupils. An accurate PD is necessary to mount the lenses in your frame correctly. It is typical for the PD not to be included in the written prescription but should be available through your optician. You can also measure your PD at home using our PD Measurement Tool.
Fetch Lens Types
Fetch recommends the guidelines below when selecting your lenses. If you have any questions about choosing the best lens for your prescription, please contact them directly.
- CR-39: Prescription maximum of +/-3. Most prescriptions fall into this range. CR-39 has the most clarity and color definition. Includes AR coating and scratch resistance.
- Poly carbonate: Prescription maximum of +/-5. Poly carbonate is impact-resistant with slightly less clarity than CR-39. Includes AR coating, scratch resistance, and 100% UV protection.
- 1.67 High Index: Prescription maximum of +/-8 spherical. Almost 10% thinner than CR-39 with the same prescription. Includes AR coating and scratch resistance. High clarity and color definition, with thinner lenses for stronger prescriptions.
Top 3 Benefits of Buying Fetch Eye wear
1. Saves You Time
You would think that because there are a few steps in the ordering process, which include sending packages back and forth in the mail that the time between shipments would take long. In my experience, starting with my first call to the final product took less than two weeks.
Not bad considering I didn’t have to visit multiple eye class stores to choose a frame, only to have to return a few weeks later to pick up my frames once my prescription was put into them.
I was able to peruse the frame options from the comfort of my own home and select a few pairs I liked. Once I received the samples, I was able to try them each on and get an idea of which pair worked for me the best. I didn’t have to rush my decision or feel pressure from a salesperson. The best part, I was able to try on as many pairs as I liked until I found the perfect pair all because of their offer of free shipping and free returns.
2. Saves You Money
Individual frames start at $95 per pair and include a basic prescription. That’s pretty outstanding considering high-end designer frames cost upwards of $175 a pair without a prescription. Cut out the licensing, branding, and logos, and you get an affordable, stylish set of frames that look good and make you feel good – you helped give back!
3. So many stylish choices
Fetch offers a variety of fashionable eyeglasses, reading glasses, sunglasses, and sun reading glasses. Finding the perfect pair is easy as you can search by face shape, hair color, skin tone, and or frame size. Frames come in men’s and woman’s sizes, and each frame has a unique “pet” name.
