Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering company to market prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker International

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People love them because they appear to be almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not want your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal choice. The subtle pink color gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a very put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker International

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect 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 edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current take on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a tiny 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 is not a color you find all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have 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 mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker International

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the company 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 rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully put together and dispatched through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as providing the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens style options. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 recommended for those with an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

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

The Maker Edition is now the most costly collection on the website beginning at $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is classed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker International

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price around $120. Once more, this is considered mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations as well. One of their primary principles as a company is to actively work on reducing its impact on the ecosystem. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the ecosystem by tracking 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 which makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they give away a set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by helping people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
