Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship 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 online in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t dull and clinical. They are polished, chic, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard customers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may 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 until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Upload Picture

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they look virtually invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect choice. The faint pink shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a modest way to freshen things up – perfect for accomplishing a more chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Upload Picture

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary 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 distinctive keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

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

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the business removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and dispatched through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as providing the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design choices. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They shift from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an additional $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 exceptionally high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at zero additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension because of 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 design choices, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also awesome that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive design series on the site starting at $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Upload Picture

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients 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 sold they give away a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by assisting people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
