Warby Parker Hughes Review

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive gamble, it paid off. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They are polished, stylish, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Hughes Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way conceivable. If you like a refined look, this shape is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Hughes Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they look virtually invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not want your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal pick. The modest pink tone offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a moderate way to liven things up – ideal for achieving a more smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more easygoing option. Warby Parker Hughes Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a classic form. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so large that they take over 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 eyewear, we want to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

Watts-in-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These timeless glasses will only heighten your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Hughes Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created 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 competitors, but because the business removes the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a sequence of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for people who want completely uncolored vision inside and out.

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

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

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you could choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those who have a strong prescription as they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an extra $30.

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

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

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at zero extra cost:

Scratch resistance – This shields your lenses from day-to-day wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain from reflections and lessens glare.

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

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

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

 

Pricing

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

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly design series on the website being $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Hughes Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price about $120. Again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations as well. One of their fundamental missions as a company is to proactively work on decreasing its effects on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker appealing to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair 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 aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
