Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first organization to market prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first 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 are sleek, chic, well designed, and fabulous. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted purchasers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Maker Edition

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a great option. Warby Parker Maker Edition

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they give the impression of being virtually invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this may be an excellent pick. The modest pink color offers 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 shade is a subtle way to freshen things up – great for accomplishing a more chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed option. Warby Parker Maker Edition

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Maker Edition

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully put together and pushed through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused 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 eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for people who prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They adjust from completely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

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

However, if you want a high quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer 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 suggested for those with an especially high prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

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

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

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

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

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also handy that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive series on the website being $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Maker Edition

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price about $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by assisting people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
