These days, glasses are supposed to match your personality without sacrificing its functionality or taking away your own style.

Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of inexpensively priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are seeking to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

Warby Parker Raleigh Review

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a excellent option. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they appear just about invisible from afar and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal fit. The modest rosey shade offers 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 shade is a moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a very clean look.

Baker-in-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more chill option. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a classic shape. 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. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than some, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite striking.

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 incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are made in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then carefully built and pushed through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair 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 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 packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that want absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract ultraviolet rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

warby-parker-lens-options

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a strong prescription since they’re 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 all those who have an exceptionally strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

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

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at zero extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the site being $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price about $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their primary missions as a company is to proactively work on minimizing its impact on the ecosystem. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to some person 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 issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by aiding people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
