Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are needing to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Lyle Review

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

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, well designed, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Lyle Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you like a refined look, this design is a fitting option. Warby Parker Lyle Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they seem virtually invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t like your frames covering your face, this might be an excellent pick. The faint pink 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 modest way to freshen things up – great for accomplishing a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both 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 bits are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed option. Warby Parker Lyle Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday man or woman who does not 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 crazy – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a quintessential form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth idol 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 feels and looks simple. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only add to your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Lyle Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs 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 eyeglasses are then gently put together and pushed through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is built 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 come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens design variants. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you can opt from the following:

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

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help 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 minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

They also provide different lens design options, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their primary principles as a organization is to proactively work on lowering its impact on the ecosystem. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker alluring 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 pair 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 issue. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by aiding people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
