For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, uncomfortable frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your persona without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re looking to revamp your style, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Plaza

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to market prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They’re polished, chic, well designed, and fabulous. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Plaza

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this shape is a excellent option. Warby Parker Plaza

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People love them because they appear to be nearly invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not want your frames taking over your face, this may be an ideal choice. The modest rosey tint gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to freshen things up – great for achieving a more sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both 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 are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree option. Warby Parker Plaza

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than others, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only complement your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have 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 repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade hue makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Plaza

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but since the business removes the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a series of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who like completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract ultraviolet rays. They adjust from completely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses along with any optical order. They’re some of the most light and impact-resistant lenses; and they come with the purchase 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 great for people who have a high prescription as they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an extra $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 exceptionally high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to 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 ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly collection on the site starting at $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Plaza

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their main principles as a organization is to actively work on decreasing its effects on the environment. The organization is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature 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 glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a pair to someone 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 problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by assisting people access glasses to be able to see.
