For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to complement your persona without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re desiring to revamp your style, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Eleanor

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive gamble, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its stores are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, well decorated, and fun. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a time when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might 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 fabulous way possible. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a fitting option. Warby Parker Eleanor

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they appear almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames taking over your face, this might be an ideal pick. The modest pink shade offers 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 tone is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a more put-together appearance.

Baker-in-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Eleanor

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are 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 appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses 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 clean-cut business suit. These classic glasses will only add to your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Eleanor

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a series of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens style choices. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract UV rays. They alter from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a strong prescription as they are around 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 exceptionally strong 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 no additional payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable rates. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the site being $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Eleanor

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price about $120. Again, this is considered 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 operations as well. One of their main missions as a company is to actively work on minimizing its effects on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker appealing to people 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 purchased they donate a pair to someone in need. They found 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 be able to see.
