For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, ill-fitting frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are expected to complement your character without sacrificing its practicality or hijacking your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s evident that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of inexpensively priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are desiring to change your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker S

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first company to market prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge gamble, it paid off. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They are polished, attractive, well decorated, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker S

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People desire them because they seem just about invisible from a distance and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t like your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect pick. The faint rose shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a moderate way to liven things up – excellent for accomplishing a more clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look 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 little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more chill option. Warby Parker S

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t 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 – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a classic form. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your elegant and contemporary 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 quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker S

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently built and sent through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new pair 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 coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens style choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for people that want completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

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

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along 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!

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for all those with an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker S

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price around $120. Again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact 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 alluring to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
