For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for large, uncomfortable frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s evident that Warby Parker knows that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of reasonably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are wanting to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Hardy

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that an enormous risk, it succeeded. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, well decorated, and fabulous. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful clients. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a time when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Hardy

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear almost invisible from far away and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect choice. The faint rose shade 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 tone is a moderate way to freshen things up – great for achieving a more clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny 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 chill option. Warby Parker Hardy

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a classic shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than some, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These classic glasses will only heighten your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Hardy

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and dispatched through a number 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 the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually checked and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens style choices. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you may opt from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an exceptionally strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also handy that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly design series on the website starting at $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Hardy

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price point about $120. Again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their fundamental missions as a organization is to actively work on minimizing its influence on the Earth. The business is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their influence on the environment by tracking 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 factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers 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 donate a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by helping people access glasses to be able to see.
