Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a huge gamble, it paid off. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t dull and clinical. They are sleek, attractive, well decorated, and fun. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a period when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Expansion

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a perfect option. Warby Parker Expansion

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they seem just about invisible from a distance and go with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent fit. The subtle rose hue gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a modest way to liven things up – excellent for accomplishing a more sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree option. Warby Parker Expansion

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a perfect 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 edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take 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 notable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth 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 looks and feels simple. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only complement your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see 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 colour makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Expansion

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently put together and pushed through a sequence of quality tests. 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 scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

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

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

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

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people who have a strong prescription as they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 with an extremely high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain from reflections and reduces glare.

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

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also awesome that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest design series on the site being $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145, which can be viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Expansion

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price point around $120.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations. One of their fundamental principles as a company is to proactively work on lowering its harm on the environment. The organization 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 manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker appealing 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 give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by aiding people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
