For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, awkward frames. These days, glasses are supposed to match your identity without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker knows that 1 frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re wanting to change your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Fletcher

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a huge risk, it succeeded. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses 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 stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, well designed, and fun. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard clients. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Fletcher

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way conceivable. If you want a refined look, this shape is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Fletcher

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they look more or less invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this may be an ideal choice. The slight pink shade 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 moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a very clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more carefree choice. Warby Parker Fletcher

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Picture 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 cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue 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. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Fletcher

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the business removes the middlemen, the costs 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 using a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a sequence of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new set is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

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

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They adjust from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those who have a strong prescription since they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an extremely high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain caused by 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 polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the site starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Fletcher

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price around $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business. One of their fundamental principles as a organization is to actively work on minimizing its influence on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to some person 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 trying to address this issue by helping people access glasses to have the ability to see.
