Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to market prescription glasses online and send them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous gamble, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They are polished, chic, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you want a refined look, this structure is a fitting option. U Village Warby Parker

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they appear just about invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames taking over your face, this may be an excellent pick. The faint rose tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a modest way to liven things up – excellent for completing a more sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more chill choice. U Village Warby Parker

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse design of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. U Village Warby Parker

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and sent through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for people that prefer absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker includes polycarbonate lenses with any optical order. They’re some of the most lightweight and impact-resistant lenses; and they come with the purchase price of the frames!

warby-parker-lens-options

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you may select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those who have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an exceptionally strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at zero additional payment:

Scratch resistance – This protects your lenses from day-to-day wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension because of reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

They also have different lens design choices, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest series on the site beginning at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range in the market. U Village Warby Parker

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price point around $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their main missions as a company is to proactively work on lowering its influence on the environment. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair to some person in need. They saw a need that people from around the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by helping people access glasses to have the ability to see.
