For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. Now, glasses are expected to complement your persona without sacrificing its practicality or hijacking your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker knows that one frame does not in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re needing to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special event, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Melrose

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that an enormous risk, it succeeded. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, tastefully designed, and fun. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful buyers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Melrose

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might 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 until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way possible. If you like a refined look, this structure is a excellent option. Warby Parker Melrose

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they appear almost invisible from a distance and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal pick. The slight rosey color offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for completing a more chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem 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 is the little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Melrose

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses 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 spin on a quintessential form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Melrose

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently built and dispatched through a series of quality inspections. When you order, a new set 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 coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as having the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens style options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for people who desire completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They change from completely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along with any optical purchase. They are some of the most light 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 great for people who have a high prescription as they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, 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 recommended for those who have an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain because of reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also have different lens style options, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly series on the website starting at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Melrose

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price point around $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker appealing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a set to some person 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 matter.
