For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are expected to match your character without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s evident that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of inexpensively priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are seeking to change your look, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Reading Glasses Review

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to provide prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard clients. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a period when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Reading Glasses Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this structure is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Reading Glasses Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they look almost invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal choice. The subtle pink tone offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a modest way to liven things up – perfect for completing a very clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Reading Glasses Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday man or woman who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a classic form. 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 childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only complement your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t 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 colour makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Reading Glasses Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then gently built and pushed through a sequence of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are individually checked and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who desire absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

warby-parker-lens-options

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a strong prescription since they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

Scratch resistance – This shields your lenses from everyday wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is 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, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the site being $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145, which is considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Reading Glasses Review

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business as well. One of their primary missions as a company is to proactively work on lowering its harm on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker appealing 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 purchased they donate a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by helping people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
