Warby Parker Polarized Review

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to market prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, stylish, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal clients. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a time when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Polarized Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you want a refined look, this shape is a fitting option. Warby Parker Polarized Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they give the impression of being almost invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames taking over your face, this might be an ideal choice. The slight rose hue offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a modest way to liven things up – great for achieving a more put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. 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 easygoing choice. Warby Parker Polarized Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Polarized Review

Construction

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

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for people who want absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They alter from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a strong prescription as they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for those with an exceptionally high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain caused by reflections and lessens 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 produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest series on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Polarized Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price around $120. Once more, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

They have a 30-day, no-questions-asked policy for each of their eyeglasses, in addition to a 1-year warranty for all their lenses where they will replace the scratched lenses at no cost over the first 12 months.

The minimum shipping duration is very reasonable at 5 business days for non-prescription sunglasses. The maximum time is a bit of a wait for progressive prescription glasses and single-vision prescription sunglasses at 10-12 business days.

Warby Parker has the best customer support on our opinion. Customer care representatives were friendly, attentive, and helpful as they answered all of our queries.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their main missions as a business is to actively work on decreasing its harm on the ecosystem. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they donate a set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have the opportunity 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.
