Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first company to market prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it succeeded. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They are polished, fashionable, tastefully decorated, and fun. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Podcast

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till 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 Podcast

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they appear almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect choice. The faint pink tone 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 colour is a modest way to liven things up – ideal for accomplishing a very sleek look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Podcast

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a typical form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic glasses will only add to your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Podcast

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently built and sent through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for people that like completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract UV rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you want a high quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription as they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an extremely strong prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly collection on the site being $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Podcast

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business. One of their fundamental principles as a business is to proactively work on reducing its influence on the Earth. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their influence on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by aiding people access glasses to be able to see.
