Key People
Chad Dime Co-founder When my co-founders and I created DIFF Charitable Eyewear in 2014 we were inspired to fill a void in the monopolized eyewear industry. At that time if someone was shopping for eyewear in the United States, odds were good that they were buying them from the corporate monolith Luxottica. The company controlled over 85% of the market, and that industry dominance meant the savings we're decidedly not passed on to consumers – allowing designer frames to be marked up nearly 1,000 percent. We founded DIFF with a different vision in mind. We wanted to create a fair market value for designer eyewear all while giving back and inspiring others to make this world a better place.
