For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, uncomfortable frames. Nowadays, glasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing its functionality or taking away your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of inexpensively priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are seeking to revamp your style, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker In Soho

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it was worth it. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, well designed, and fabulous. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker In Soho

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you want a refined look, this design is a perfect option. Warby Parker In Soho

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they seem more or less invisible from far away and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal choice. The subtle rosey shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for accomplishing a very clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree option. Warby Parker In Soho

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the ability to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker In Soho

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the business eliminates 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 glasses are then gently built and pushed through a number of quality tests. When you order, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens design variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for people that prefer absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They change from completely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on overcast 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 purchase price of the frames!

warby-parker-lens-options

But if you want a high quality lens, you can pick from the following:

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

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145 at present, which is viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker In Soho

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

One of their fundamental missions as a business is to proactively work on minimizing its impact on the ecosystem. The organization is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a set 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 problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by assisting people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
