Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to sell prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it succeeded. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, well designed, and fun. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a time when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Upton Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they give the impression of being nearly invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this might be the perfect fit. The modest rose color 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 color is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for accomplishing a very put-together appearance.

Baker-in-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look 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 little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree option. Warby Parker Upton Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of the eyeglasses 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 typical form. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

Watts-in-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t 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 colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

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

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully built and sent through a sequence of quality checks. When you order, a new set 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 finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that like completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They transition from completely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

warby-parker-lens-options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a high prescription since they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

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

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

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly series on the site being $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Upton Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price around $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business. One of their fundamental principles as a business is to actively work on minimizing its effects on the environment. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from around the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
