2) You can request a quote for standard anti-reflective prescription lenses, transition lenses, sunglass prescriptive lenses, or sunglass prescriptive polarized lenses.
3) Quotes for custom lenses can be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email us a picture of your up to date prescription from your optometrist. Also, please specify which style lenses you are looking for. And lastly, let us know a good number to reach you at.
Now onto the good stuff, the inspiration behind the product...
The WalknTalk Visionaries are inspired by a 1920's phoropter. Wondering what a phoropter is?
Here is the one that a Columbian doctor introduced to me ages ago when I began dreaming up this new concept:
Can you imagine a better object to symbolize perspective, vision, and clarity? I could hardly either. And that is why I did everything in my will power to track down this antique, bid it, win it, and photograph the Chicago skyline through it.
The result is an image that still gives me pause...
Notice in the center of the circle is the John Hancock tower. Many remember John Hancock for his large and stylish signature that he left on the declaration of independence. His name has even developed into a synonym for a signature.
Might we take it upon ourselves to declare our independence daily, and sign off on our own slips for approval? Well, but of course. And this is the one key ingredient we will need to "craft our vision with our experiences" -permission. So give it the old Hancock, and write your own ticket.
May we not look to others for permission to craft our dreams, and build our visions. But instead, sign our own declaration of independence, and embark daily in the direction of those dreams, and craft away, enriching the journey with every page turning moment.
At the heart of the WalknTalk brand, and the WalknTalk Visionaries is this core value -
Craft your vision with your experiences.
And to remind you of this, we are including a microfiber cloth that has this very image imprinted on it.
