For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to match your identity without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker is aware that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of reasonably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re desiring to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Tate Review

Warby Parker Tate Review

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that an enormous gamble, it succeeded. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout clients. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Tate 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 glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Tate Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they look more or less invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this might be the perfect fit. The subtle rosey shade gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a subtle way to liven things up – great for accomplishing a very chic 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 elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree choice. Warby Parker Tate Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current take 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 noticeable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we wish to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your polished 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 is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Tate Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as selling the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens style choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who want completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark grey 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!

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

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

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

They also provide different lens style choices, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is able to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly design series on the site starting at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Tate Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price about $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business. One of their main principles as a business is to proactively work on lowering its effects on the ecosystem. The organization is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker appealing to customers 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 set to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by aiding people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
