Warby Parker Review 2019

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that an enormous gamble, it was worth it. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, stylish, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful customers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a span of time when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Review 2019

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way possible. If you enjoy a refined look, this shape is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Review 2019

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear to be more or less invisible from far away and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not want your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal fit. The modest pink tint 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 subtle way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a very chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 tiny details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more carefree choice. Warby Parker Review 2019

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a quintessential shape. Made from top 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 childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than others, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we desire to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These classic glasses will only heighten your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Review 2019

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and dispatched through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new set is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually checked and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women who prefer absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They shift from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you can opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a strong prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension from reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest series on the site being $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145, which can be considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Review 2019

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price point around $120.

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker intriguing 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 someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue.
