Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it was worth it. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are polished, stylish, well designed, and enjoyable. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout purchasers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a time when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker Chelsea Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they seem to be nearly invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent pick. The subtle rose hue offers 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 tone is a modest way to liven things up – ideal for achieving a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more carefree option. Warby Parker Chelsea Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching 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 cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the ability to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

Watts-in-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. 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 clean-cut suit. These classic eyeglasses will only complement your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need 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 are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Chelsea Review

Construction

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

Lens Options

As well as selling the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens style choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that want completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They transition from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

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

warby-parker-lens-options

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner 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 suggested for those with an extremely high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

Warby Parker offers these 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 caused by reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the site being $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be classed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Chelsea Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The least expensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price point about $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their primary principles as a business is to proactively work on reducing its influence on the environment. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
