For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, uncomfortable frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to match your persona without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your own style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker understands that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re seeking to change your look, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Otr

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They’re polished, chic, well decorated, and fabulous. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a time when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Otr

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way conceivable. If you like a refined look, this shape is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Otr

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear almost invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent fit. 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 tone is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for accomplishing a more chic look.

  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 small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a rather more carefree choice. Warby Parker Otr

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a perfect alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching 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 big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the ability to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless glasses will only add to your refined and modern 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 need to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty 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 colour incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Otr

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the company removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully put together and sent through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who prefer absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They alter from completely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

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

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a strong prescription since they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost 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 extremely high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens style choices, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients 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 sold they give away a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by assisting people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
