For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, ill-fitting frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to match your personality without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your flair. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are looking to revamp your style, get a pair for a special event, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Hudson

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to market prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous risk, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Hudson

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way possible. If you want a refined look, this structure is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Hudson

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they look nearly invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t like your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal fit. The subtle rose color offers 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 shade is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a very chic 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 come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a rather more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Hudson

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a classic shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Hudson

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the business removes the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The glasses are then carefully put together and sent through a series of quality checks. When you order, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that want absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They shift from completely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker includes polycarbonate lenses along 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 prefer a higher quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a strong prescription as they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 recommended for all those with an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain 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 provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is able to offer all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly collection on the website starting at $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Hudson

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price about $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their primary missions as a company is to proactively work on minimizing its effects on the Earth. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by assisting people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
