Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t dull and clinical. They’re polished, trendy, well decorated, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted buyers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker Seymour Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – 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 fabulous way conceivable. If you like a refined look, this shape is a perfect option. Warby Parker Seymour Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People want them because they appear nearly invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect fit. The slight rosey shade 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 color is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a very sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even 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 bits are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree choice. Warby Parker Seymour Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a typical form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is timeless. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only add to your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you find all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Seymour Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the 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 polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently built and sent through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your 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 UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that want completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

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

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at zero additional payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

They also provide 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 prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also great that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive design series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Seymour Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price around $120. Once again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Another factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to people 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 donate a set 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 matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by assisting people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
