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.

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that an enormous risk, it was worth it. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out 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, fashionable, well decorated, and enjoyable. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful purchasers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Brady

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they appear to be almost invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t want your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal choice. The faint rosey hue 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 shade is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for completing a very chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree choice. Warby Parker Brady

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a quintessential form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless glasses will only heighten your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Brady

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought 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 since the business removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens style variants. They are:

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