Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

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

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Toronto Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – 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 fashionable way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a excellent option. Warby Parker Toronto Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they appear to be more or less invisible from far away and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this might be an excellent pick. The faint rosey hue 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 freshen things up – great for achieving a more chic appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

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

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, but not so big 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 a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

Watts-in-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic glasses will only complement your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Toronto Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the 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 UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens style options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for people that like completely uncolored vision inside and out.

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

Warby Parker gives 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!

But if you desire a higher quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a strong prescription as they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an extra $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 extremely high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension due to reflections and lessens 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 polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by assisting people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
