Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look.

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering company to provide prescription glasses online and send them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge leap, it was worth it. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, chic, well decorated, and fun. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted clients. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Union Station

  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 fabulous way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a great choice. Warby Parker Union Station

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear just about invisible from far away and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not want your frames taking over your face, this might be an excellent pick. The slight pink hue 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 tone is a moderate way to freshen things up – great for accomplishing a more put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed option. Warby Parker Union Station

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take 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. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than others, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished eyeglasses 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. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless glasses will only add to your polished 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 have to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite striking.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Union Station

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured 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 competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently built and sent through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for people that want absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They change from completely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

However, if you want a high quality lens, you could choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive design series on the website being $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Union Station

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their main missions as a company is to proactively work on lowering its impact on the environment. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they donate a pair 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 problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by aiding people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
