Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to offer prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that an enormous risk, it paid off. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They are polished, chic, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted clients. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Wilder

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this structure is a great option. Warby Parker Wilder

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People love them because they seem just about invisible from afar and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this might be the perfect choice. The subtle pink tint 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 color is a subtle way to freshen things up – perfect for completing a more clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more chill choice. Warby Parker Wilder

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white border 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 form. 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 figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than others, 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 complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see 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 pretty striking.

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Wilder

Construction

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

Lens Options

In addition to providing the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that prefer absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on cloudy 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!

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an additional $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 exceptionally strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off 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 produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

They also provide different lens design choices, 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 inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the website being $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Wilder

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

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they give away a set 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 access glasses to be able to see.
