For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. These days, eyeglasses are expected to complement your personality without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker understands that one frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of inexpensively priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are wanting to revamp your look, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Toronto

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that an enormous gamble, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re polished, chic, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Toronto

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Toronto

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they seem to be just about invisible from far away and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect choice. The faint rose shade 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 moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for completing a more sleek look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing alternative. Warby Parker Toronto

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only complement your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Toronto

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the business removes 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 put together and sent through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens design variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that prefer absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you desire a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those who have a strong prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for all those with an extremely high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these 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 relieves eye tension due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens design options, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also awesome that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now 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 standard pair of glasses is $145, which can be classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Toronto

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price about $120. Once again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their main principles as a company is to proactively work on reducing its harm on the environment. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their influence on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker alluring to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they donate a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by helping people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
