Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge gamble, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, trendy, tastefully designed, and enjoyable. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a period when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Instagram

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they look virtually invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not want your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal choice. The subtle rosey tone 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 colour is a moderate way to liven things up – ideal for accomplishing a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look 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’s the little details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a rather more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Instagram

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not like to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic eyeglasses will only complement your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Instagram

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but since the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and sent through a number of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are individually examined and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who prefer completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract ultraviolet rays. They transition from completely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a strong prescription since they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although 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 who have an exceptionally strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

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