In a move set to attract the Advanced Style set, the perpetual do-gooders at Warby Parker have just announced the online arrival of progressive lenses. The no-line bifocals, which eliminate the need for separate reading and distance glasses, start at $295 including frame ($200 more than single-vision styles) and are available in both optical and sunwear designs. Your mom is going to be very excited about this.—Lauren Berger
