For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, unbearable frames. Now, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are looking to change your style, get a pair for a special event, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Kimball Review

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it was worth it. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They are polished, fashionable, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal shoppers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a time when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Kimball Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Kimball Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they give the impression of being nearly invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect fit. The subtle rose shade gives 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 moderate way to liven things up – excellent for completing a more chic appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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’s the tiny aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more chill choice. Warby Parker Kimball Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement outfits, 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 artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These classic eyeglasses will only complement your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Kimball Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much 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 compound. The glasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a series of quality checks. 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 treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women who like absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They change from completely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an extremely high prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they offer 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 online and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the website 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, which is viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Kimball Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price point around $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their key missions as a organization is to proactively work on reducing its impact on the Earth. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker intriguing to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by helping people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
