Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering company to sell prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it was worth it. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, chic, well designed, and fabulous. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a span of time when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Eliot Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Eliot Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People love them because they look almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t want your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal choice. The subtle pink tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for completing a more put-together appearance.

Baker-in-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a rather more chill alternative. Warby Parker Eliot Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a quintessential form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger 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 potential to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These classic eyeglasses will only add to your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Eliot Review

Construction

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

Lens Options

As well as providing the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who want completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They transition from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on cloudy 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!

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription since they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an extremely high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

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

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly design series on the site beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Eliot Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price point around $120.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their key principles as a organization is to actively work on lowering its influence on the environment. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, 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 alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they donate a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by aiding people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
