For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, uncomfortable frames. Nowadays, glasses are supposed to match your persona without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re needing to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker 2017 Collection

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to sell prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that a massive gamble, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, attractive, well decorated, and pleasant. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker 2017 Collection

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a perfect option. Warby Parker 2017 Collection

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they appear almost invisible from far away and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not want your frames taking over your face, this may be an ideal choice. The faint pink shade 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 color is a modest way to liven things up – great for accomplishing a more chic appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details 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 rather more chill choice. Warby Parker 2017 Collection

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday man or woman who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current take on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker 2017 Collection

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the company removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully put together and sent through a sequence of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that want completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract ultraviolet rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you desire a higher quality lens, you can choose from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those with an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension due to reflections and reduces glare.

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

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

They also provide different lens style alternatives, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is able to sell all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker 2017 Collection

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price about $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their main principles as a business is to actively work on minimizing its harm on the Earth. The business is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they donate a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
