Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to offer prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a huge leap, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, well designed, and fun. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a time when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way possible. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a fitting option. Warby Parker Baker

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they seem to be just about invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect pick. The modest rosey tone offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a modest way to freshen things up – ideal for achieving a more clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Baker

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern 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 idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than others, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color 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 pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines 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 nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Baker

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the company removes the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully put together and sent through a sequence of quality checks. When you order, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens style variants. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They alter from completely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you prefer 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 up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an especially high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at zero extra cost:

Scratch resistance – This secures 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 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 provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest design series on the website being $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145, which can be classed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Baker

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price around $120. Again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.
