Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style.

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering company to sell prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it succeeded. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, chic, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Wave 3

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Wave 3

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People love them because they appear to be nearly invisible from a distance and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal fit. The slight pink hue 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 shade is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a very put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a rather more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Wave 3

  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 want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take 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 distinctive keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than others, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These classic eyeglasses will only complement your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade hue makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Wave 3

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and sent through a number of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new set is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for people that prefer completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you can opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a high prescription since they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

Scratch resistance – This secures your lenses from everyday wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension due to reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

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

The Maker Edition is now the most costly design series on the site being $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Wave 3

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the average 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 business. One of their key principles as a business is to actively work on reducing its effects on the environment. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
