Born with a rare disorder known as Peter's Anomaly, Jonas Paul gave the Harrisons a window into the world of blindness. Twenty-one surgeries and many prayers later, Jonas's vision was restored to a functional level. However, this blessing came with new challenges; one of them was finding glasses he could feel great in. After their search came up empty, the Harrison's launched Jonas Paul Eyewear with a mission is to help kids feel like themselves: comfortable, confident, and stylish. The company aims to give kids confidence in their eyewear, with a secondary mission of preventing childhood blindness in the developing world. With impressive growth through its e-commerce site and wholesale-retail partners like Walmart Vision, Jonas Paul Eyewear has quickly come to be a leading brand of children's eyewear and has helped 200K+ children so far with sight-saving services like eye-exams, vitamins, WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene training) and antibiotics.
