alamodelens about us photo

Alamode is an affordable online prescription glasses brand that doesn’t require insurance to afford. Offering stylish eyewear with guaranteed quality, it was founded by MOMO, an international student from Hong Kong who studied in the US, and her partners.

In 2020 MOMO, who was studying in the United States, discovered that her prescription glasses were broken and she could no longer wear it and needed to purchase new glasses. However, MOMO’s student health insurance does not cover prescription glasses. For MOMO without prescription insurance, it is very expensive to configure a pair of nearsighted glasses with 800 degrees of myopia and 1.75 diopters of astigmatism. MOMO  searched for different prescription options and stores that can save her money on prescription glasses. But it still cost more than she budgeted to complete her optometry and prescription. It was not a pleasant shopping experience for an international student without prescription insurance. The price was too high, the three weeks long wait, the inability to choose beautiful and unique frames on a limited budget, the very heavy myopic lenses and the fatigue of wearing them. Such a failed shopping experience also troubled MOMO’s friends. Maybe there is an easier and cheaper way to get a nice and unique pair of glasses in the US? MOMO and her friends decided to take action for affordable eyeglasses without medical insurance, for a faster and easier prescription process, for quality frames with a sense of design, and for partners with high myopia who don’t need to wear bulky glasses.

In 2022, MOMO and her partner founded Alamode, which, like the original intention of these girls, focuses on every partner who needs a pair of affordable, guaranteed quality and fashionable eyewear!
