For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. Now, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker understands 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 have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re desiring to revamp your style, pick up a pair for a special event, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Winter 2018

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to sell prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge gamble, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, chic, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful purchasers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a period when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker Winter 2018

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this structure is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Winter 2018

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they appear to be virtually invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist 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 may be the perfect pick. The slight pink tint 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 colour is a subtle way to liven things up – great for achieving a very chic appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more easygoing alternative. Warby Parker Winter 2018

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the ability to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and contemporary 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 have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Winter 2018

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as many of its competitors, but since the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and dispatched through a sequence 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 the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style variants. They are:

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

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

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along with any optical sale. They are 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 prefer a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 who have an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension because of reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is able to offer you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly design series on the website being $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Winter 2018

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145.
