We heard you—new lens option!
about 2 years ago – Thu, Dec 08, 2016 at 03:24:26 AM

Hey backers! 

Thank you to everyone who has pledged thus far. We passed $330k today and we're just barely over one week in! It means a lot to have so many people pledging to help us bring this product to life. We’re hoping to keep this momentum going to push us past our $500k stretch goal and beyond.

Blue light filter

We’re opening a new pledge tier for Vue frames with 1.61 high-index blue light filtering lenses. Such lenses help to reduce eye fatigue and are popular among wearers that spend a lot of time at computers. This reward is priced at $229. For existing backers:

  • If you pledged for the $179 tier and want to upgrade, you can go to Manage and change to the new tier
  • If you pledged for the early bird or customized etching and want to upgrade, you can add $50 to your order. If you've already added $50, you don't need to add more
  • If you pledged for progressive lenses, you don't need to do anything - you'll be able to choose this option in the post-campaign survey
  • If you pledged for 2 pairs or more, add $50 per pair
  • Please note that blue light filtering is not available for polarized or photochromic lenses

Press 

Check out some early press published about Vue! We’re scheduling more interviews and demo events as we speak, and will have more to share in the coming weeks.

Lens Info 

We’ve seen a lot of questions regarding coatings, prices, and comparisons to existing eyeglass providers, so we wanted to clarify a few things. Our product is the frames and the electronics inside them. The lenses are not something we are manufacturing ourselves, so we are partnering with a lens provider to provide the lenses for each order. Rather than shipping everyone empty frames and having you find lenses yourselves, we think offering backers the ability to receive lenses already installed would be a better experience.

Additionally, as a small company with low product volume, we’ve done our best to negotiate reasonable lens pricing for our backers. We made an earnest effort to have prices similar to what you can expect from a high-volume, established eyewear provider. All of our efforts are to make the project more cost-effective and accessible to our backers. 

Onward 

Stay tuned for more updates! And thanks again for the support and enthusiasm!

With love, 

the Vue team

$800k and rising!

As always, thank you so much for the continued support. We've far exceeded our goal and we are really excited to have you all on board. The Vue community is 4000 backers strong and growing and we are so excited to deliver this product to you all!

Kickstarter Superbacker Event

Last week, Kickstarter invited us to a special event they hosted in San Francisco called the "Superbacker Demo Event". They invited a bunch of Kickstarter Superbackers as well as Kickstarter projects to give presentations and live demos of their projects! Jason had a great time letting Superbackers try on various Vue frames. Check out some of the images below from this awesome event!
