For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, awkward frames. Nowadays, glasses are expected to complement your persona without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker understands that one frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re looking to change your look, pick up a pair for a special event, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Chelsea

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to provide prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it paid off. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, attractive, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful customers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a chapter when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Chelsea

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People want them because they appear to be virtually invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal pick. The subtle rosey color gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for accomplishing a very smart look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot 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 little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more chill alternative. Warby Parker Chelsea

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only complement your polished 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 need to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Chelsea

Construction

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

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens style options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that desire absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They adjust from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you want a high quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer 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 those with an exceptionally high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain because of reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also awesome that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the site being $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Chelsea

The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price point around $120. Once more, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.
