Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription glasses online and send them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge leap, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, trendy, tastefully designed, and fun. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout clients. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Abbott Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Abbott Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they seem nearly invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent fit. The modest pink shade 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 shade is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a very put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more chill alternative. Warby Parker Abbott Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless glasses will only add to your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Abbott Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and pushed through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for people that like absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a high prescription as they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive design series on the site starting at $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Abbott Review

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, making the median price point around $120. Once again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker appealing to clients is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away 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 problem.
