About SOLO Eyewear

Our Story

SOLO Eyewear is a line of handcrafted sunglasses made with recycled bamboo.  Each pair purchased funds eye care for people in need.
The concept for SOLO Eyewear was developed in a classroom at San Diego State University.  Jenny was enrolled in the MBA Program.  While completing an International Entrepreneurship course, she was given the option to read Paul Polak’s Out of Poverty.  While reading the book, she discovered there was a great need for eye care around the world and decided to research the issue further.  Jenny, who has poor vision, encountered two startling statistics: approximately 1 billion people do not have access to eye care and nearly 80% of the world’s blindness is preventable.  (World Health Organization)
These statistics were a call to action… the idea for SOLO Eyewear was born. Since launching in 2011, SOLO has restored vision for 9,094+ people in need across 19 countries and it's only the beginning. With the support of a stellar team, Jenny and Dana are leading the vision restoring efforts at SOLO. Their goal for 2014 is to expand SOLO’s mission to give and create a lasting impact on thousands of people around the world.
