Proof’s founder, Brooks Dame, says, “Adding a prescription option to our line up just seemed to be part of the Proof progression. We've been receiving great feedback for all our wooden sunglasses and we constantly were getting fans asking the question, "Can you do a prescription specific frame for me?"
We really owe it to the individuals that support us and are following the whole Proof Wood Eyewear movement. If it wasn’t for their encouragement and suggestions we may not have been releasing our first wood framed prescription glasses. We are incredibly excited to drop this newest addition to the Proof eyewear lineup. We see it doing really well going forward. Our first week into the release and we sold out of the first round available.”
Proof was started in 2010 by three brothers, initially they wanting to make bamboo ski poles and then turned to making bamboo eyewear, which then expanded to include other species of wood and all kinds of lenses and tints. Sustainability is a key component in Proof’s DNA. We only use wood species that are harvested in a sustainable manner and won’t adversely impact the environment. We offer a sunglass-recycling program and even our packaging is eco-friendly. We strive to look for opportunities to reduce our impact on the environment whenever possible. Proof also thinks that good business and social endeavors aren’t mutually exclusive. They should actually be equal partners. To this end, Proof has made a commitment to support worthwhile causes. Proof has partnered with an eye clinic in India that performs sight-giving surgeries to those who can’t afford it. Proof will donate a large portion of each sale to this cause.
