Founded in 2016, Hubble has evolved from a disruptive new value segment in the online contact lens market into a category leader for affordable contact lenses with a global customer base. Through its online platforms, Hubble sells contact lenses under the Hubble brand and other contact lens brands through its companion website, ContactsCart. Hubble’s branded contact lenses are manufactured by St. Shine, one of the largest global manufacturers of contact lenses. ContactsCart offers other commercial brands of contact lenses at prices that are among the lowest in the industry.

Earlier in his career he was Chief Marketing Officer at Fresh Direct, a pioneering online grocer in New York, and later served as Chief Executive Officer to In the Swim where he grew and sold the business creating the largest multi-channel retailer in the pool supply space. “Hubble is a case study model in how to break into a consumer product market dominated by larger entrenched competitors by offering a value option and a streamlined consumer experience,” said Mr. Druckman. “Jesse and Ben executed their strategy and delivered on their vision, and now we are ready to take Hubble to the next level.” “My focus is on driving growth and profitability, working with companies to expand into new markets, create new offerings, and ensure the best possible customer experience,” said Mr. Druckman. “As a regulated industry, we have the added responsibility to be super vigilant and transparent about compliance, and I am fully committed to making sure that Hubble operates according to the highest standards in our industry.” Hubble Contacts and ContactsCart are part of Vision Path, Inc. a Delaware corporation headquartered in New York. Founded by Benjamin Cogan and Jesse Horwitz in 2016, Hubble sells its own brand of contact lenses through www.hubblecontacts.com, and other major contact lens brands through www.contactscart.com — in each case to consumers with existing contact lens prescriptions.
