Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge risk, it succeeded. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, chic, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted clients. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Winston Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a great choice. Warby Parker Winston Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they appear to be almost invisible from far away and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal fit. The faint rosey shade gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a very sleek look.

Baker-in-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

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

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a quintessential form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than others, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-in-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-in-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Winston Review

Construction

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

Lens Options

As well as providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens style options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who like absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They adjust from completely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a high prescription since they’re around 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 recommended for all those with an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain due to reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens style choices, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also awesome that different lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly design series on the site being $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Winston Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price point about $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their impact on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers 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 purchased they donate a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
