For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for large, unbearable frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are needing to change your look, 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 Griffin

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to offer prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, well designed, and fun. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this structure is a perfect option. Warby Parker Griffin

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they seem nearly invisible from a distance and go with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t want your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent pick. The faint rose color 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 shade is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a very put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. 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 distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more chill choice. Warby Parker Griffin

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss 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 couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much 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 power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer 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 ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These classic glasses will only complement your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Griffin

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the company 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. The glasses are then gently built and sent through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new set is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens style variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for people that like absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

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

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

But if you desire a high quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a high prescription since they are up to 20% slimmer 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 those with an extremely high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

Scratch resistance – This secures your lenses from day to day 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.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Griffin

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price around $120. Once again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their key missions as a business is to proactively work on minimizing its influence on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They are working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients 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 sold they give away a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from around the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by aiding people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
