For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, uncomfortable frames. Now, glasses are supposed to match your identity without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker is aware that 1 frame does not in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are wanting to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Ipo

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge leap, it paid off. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They’re sleek, fashionable, well designed, and enjoyable. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted shoppers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Warby Parker Ipo

  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 glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a great option. Warby Parker Ipo

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they look almost invisible from a distance and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t prefer your frames burying your face, this might be the perfect choice. The subtle pink tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a modest way to liven things up – ideal for achieving a more sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re 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 sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more chill option. Warby Parker Ipo

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern spin on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Ipo

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully put together and sent through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens style variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for people that want completely uncolored vision inside and out.

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

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

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription as they are up to 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 all those who have an extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain from reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable rates. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is able to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive design series on the site beginning at $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Ipo

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price about $120. Again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their fundamental principles as a organization is to proactively work on reducing its harm on the ecosystem. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm 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 accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they give away a set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by helping people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
