Warby Parker Review

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first company to offer prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses 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 stores are not dull and clinical. They are polished, stylish, tastefully decorated, and fun. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a period when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they look just about invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect fit. The faint rosey shade 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 hue is a subtle way to liven things up – great for accomplishing a more sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny 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 relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a perfect alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current 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 eye-catching keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your elegant 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 have to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour 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. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the business removes the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut 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 carefully assembled and pushed through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as providing the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for people who desire absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from completely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

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

warby-parker-lens-options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a strong prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension due to reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly design series on the site being $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which is considered as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price around $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their main principles as a business is to proactively work on decreasing its influence on the environment. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are 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 pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by assisting people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
