For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, ill-fitting frames. Now, glasses are supposed to complement your persona without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are seeking to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker 2017

Warby Parker 2017

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to sell prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive leap, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal customers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker 2017

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way possible. If you desire a refined look, this shape is a excellent choice. Warby Parker 2017

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they seem to be more or less invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal pick. The subtle rose color offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a modest way to liven things up – great for achieving a very put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses 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 curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker 2017

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a quintessential form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the ability 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 style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless glasses will only add to your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker 2017

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are much lower. 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 glasses are then carefully put together and pushed through a number of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for people who desire completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on gloomy days.

Warby Parker gives 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!

But if you desire a high quality lens, you can select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a high prescription as they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

They also offer different lens design alternatives, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145 at present, which is viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker 2017

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price around $120. Once again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Warby Parker Frames Quiz

If you need help selecting some glasses to test out, you should take the Warby Parker Frames Quiz. It only requires a couple of quick questions to determine which set of great-looking eyeglasses will be the perfect match for you. Warby Parker 2017

 

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their primary principles as a organization is to proactively work on minimizing its effects on the environment. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker intriguing to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
