Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of inexpensively priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re desiring to revamp your style, get a pair for a special event, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker 2018

Warby Parker 2018

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to market prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive leap, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online during its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They’re polished, chic, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Warby Parker 2018

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker 2018

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear more or less invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames taking over your face, this might be the perfect fit. The faint rosey 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 shade is a modest way to liven things up – perfect for achieving a very put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more chill choice. Warby Parker 2018

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade hue combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker 2018

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently built and sent through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured 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 eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who desire absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They change from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a strong prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain due to 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 provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the site being $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker 2018

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

They are working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker appealing to people 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 set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
