For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, ill-fitting frames. Now, glasses are supposed to complement your personality without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your flair. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker understands that one frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are looking to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that an enormous risk, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t dull and clinical. They’re sleek, attractive, tastefully designed, and fun. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a fitting choice. Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they seem just about invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t want your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal fit. The faint rosey tone offers 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 modest way to liven things up – great for achieving a more clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a rather more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a typical 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. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only complement your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and pushed through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for people that desire completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They transition from completely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on gloomy days.

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

warby-parker-lens-options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a high prescription since they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for all those with an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension from reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is able to sell you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the website starting at $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 in the market. Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price about $120. Again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

The minimum delivery time is very reasonable at 5 business days for non-prescription sunglasses. The maximum duration is a bit of a wait for single-vision prescription sunglasses and progressive prescription glasses at 10-12 business days.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their fundamental missions as a company is to proactively work on minimizing its impact on the environment. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
