Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to offer prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that an enormous gamble, it paid off. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, trendy, well decorated, and fabulous. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted clients. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a span of time when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses 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 design is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Roland Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear nearly invisible from a distance and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not want your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal pick. The modest rosey tint gives 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 colour is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for completing a more chic appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Roland Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern spin on a quintessential form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses 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 carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an clever 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 glasses will only complement your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Roland Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a series of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for people that prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you may select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a high prescription since they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an additional $30.

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

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

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain from reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

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

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their key principles as a organization is to proactively work on lowering its impact on the ecosystem. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. 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, warehousing, and office work. 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 give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by helping people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
