Warby Parker 2019

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it succeeded. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, tastefully decorated, and fun. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout purchasers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a time when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker 2019

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you want a refined look, this structure is a excellent choice. Warby Parker 2019

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People want them because they give the impression of being just about invisible from afar and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t like your frames covering your face, this may be an excellent pick. The subtle rose tone offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a modest way to liven things up – ideal for accomplishing a more smart look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more carefree option. Warby Parker 2019

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current take on a classic shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than others, but not so large 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 wish to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take 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 heighten your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker 2019

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently built and pushed through a sequence of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for people that like completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a high prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although 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 those who have an exceptionally 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 zero extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension caused by reflections and reduces glare.

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

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly design series on the website being $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker 2019

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to someone 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 matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by aiding people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
