Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it was worth it. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t dull and clinical. They are polished, trendy, well designed, and pleasant. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a time when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Europe

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People desire them because they seem more or less invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be the perfect pick. The faint rose color gives 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 colour is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for completing a more chic appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot 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 small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more chill alternative. Warby Parker Europe

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a quintessential shape. 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 youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than others, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the ability to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we desire to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Europe

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the business removes the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully assembled and pushed through a number of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens style variants. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you can select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a strong prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an extra $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 exceptionally high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No 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 from reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is convenient that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the website starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is classed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Europe

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their fundamental missions as a company is to proactively work on lowering its influence on the Earth. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to customers is that they are 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 set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
