For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are supposed to match your identity without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are seeking to revamp your style, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Upshaw Review

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first organization to market prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, tastefully designed, and enjoyable. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a time when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you want a refined look, this shape is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Upshaw Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People want them because they seem to be just about invisible from afar and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames taking over your face, this might be an excellent pick. The subtle rosey color offers 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 tone is a subtle way to freshen things up – ideal for achieving a very put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Upshaw Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Upshaw Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They transition from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a high prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an extra $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at zero extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is convenient that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is considered as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Upshaw Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price point about $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue.
