For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for large, uncomfortable frames. These days, eyeglasses are expected to complement your personality without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are looking to change your look, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Interview

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to market prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that a massive gamble, it paid off. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, fashionable, well designed, and pleasant. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may 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 till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this shape is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Interview

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they give the impression of being almost invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this may be the perfect choice. The slight rosey hue offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a subtle way to liven things up – ideal for accomplishing a very sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They’re 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 difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a slightly more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Interview

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take on a typical 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. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than others, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless glasses will only complement your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Interview

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 built on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and sent through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens style variants. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They transition from completely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker includes polycarbonate lenses along with any optical order. 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 desire a high quality lens, you may select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those who have a high prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 suggested for all those who have an extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker offers these 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 relieves eye strain because of reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly design series on the site starting at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Interview

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price about $120. Once again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their main missions as a organization is to proactively work on reducing its effects on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to some person 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 problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by aiding people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
