For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to match your character without sacrificing their practicality 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 online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re seeking to revamp your style, pick up a pair for a special event, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Hugo Review

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t dull and clinical. They are polished, fashionable, well designed, and fun. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard clients. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a period when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Hugo Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they appear to be virtually invisible from far away and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this may be an excellent pick. The faint rose shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

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

Baker-in-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 is the small details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed option. Warby Parker Hugo Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the eyeglasses 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 modern spin on a quintessential form. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we wish to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-in-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite 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 tone makes use of tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Hugo Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then carefully put together and dispatched through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design variants. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They alter from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

warby-parker-lens-options

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension from reflections and lessens 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! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also awesome that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly design series on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145, which can be classed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Hugo Review

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

Shipping and Support Policy

Warby Parker gives free shipping and returns if you reside in the United States or Canada.

They have a 30-day, no-questions-asked policy for all their frames, as well as a 1-year warranty for all their lenses where they’ll replace your scratched lenses at no cost within the first twelve months.

The minimum delivery duration is extremely reasonable at 5 business days for non-prescription sunglasses. The maximum duration is a bit of a wait for single-vision prescription sunglasses and progressive prescription eyeglasses at 10-12 business days.

Warby Parker has the best customer care on our opinion. Customer support representatives were friendly, attentive, and helpful as they answered all of our queries. You can reach the organization by phone, email or live chat. The site is quite easy to navigate through as well. The website even has an FAQ section and order guide to help you find the ideal glasses to match your style.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their main missions as a organization is to actively work on reducing its impact on the ecosystem. The business is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, 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 alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they donate a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from around the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
