For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, awkward frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker is aware that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are wanting to change your style, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Ames

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to offer prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive risk, it paid off. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not stodgy and clinical. They are polished, trendy, tastefully decorated, and fun. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a period when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Warby Parker Ames

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a excellent option. Warby Parker Ames

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they seem almost invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this might be the perfect fit. The modest pink tone gives 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 colour is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for completing a very sleek look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Ames

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra style 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 glasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than others, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in glasses, 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 quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Ames

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and sent through a sequence of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for people who prefer absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They shift from completely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you can opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people who have a high prescription as they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens design options, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the site starting at $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Ames

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price about $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker intriguing to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter.
