Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to offer prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it paid off. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They are sleek, attractive, tastefully designed, and fun. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker 2016

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this shape is a excellent option. Warby Parker 2016

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear to be almost invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal choice. The subtle rose tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a subtle way to liven things up – great for accomplishing a more clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more chill alternative. Warby Parker 2016

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a typical shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only add to your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find 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 colour makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker 2016

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully put together and dispatched through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are individually examined and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design choices. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They change from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses along with any optical order. They are some of the most light and impact-resistant lenses; and they come with the price of the frames!

However, if you want a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription as they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those with an especially strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at zero additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they produce polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

They also have different lens style options, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
