Now, glasses are expected to match your identity without sacrificing its practicality or hijacking your style.

Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re wanting to change your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Annex

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first company to offer prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout purchasers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they appear to be more or less invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal choice. The slight pink color gives 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 moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a more sleek look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Annex

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a classic shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, 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.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Annex

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently put together and sent through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to having 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 – really clear. These standard lenses are for people who prefer completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They adjust from completely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

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

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a high prescription since they are around 20% thinner 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 suggested for all those who have an exceptionally strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at zero additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also great that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest design series on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Annex

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price point around $120. Once again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business as well. One of their primary principles as a organization is to proactively work on decreasing its harm on the ecosystem. The organization is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature 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 saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by helping people access glasses to have the ability to see.
