Hey, four eyes! A start-up's new vision for eyewear

Eyeglass wearers unite. One recent MBA graduate is rebelling against the high cost—and high maintenance—of prescription eyewear.

"It's time for glasses to change," Konrad Billetz said.

Billetz founded start-up Frameri in July, with one mission: "No more changing frames every time your prescription changes or overpaying for glasses."

Billetz had 60 seconds to pitch his big vision to a panel with Maveron Partner David Wu; Cuurio Chief Marketing Officer Kelly Hoey; and David Bell, an e-commerce professor at the University of Pennsylvania. The segment was hosted by CNBC's Mandy Drury.

Will the panel see his big idea clearly or be out on his new look? Watch the video above to find out.
