Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to offer prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it paid off. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They are polished, attractive, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a great choice. Warby Parker Xmas

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they seem to be almost invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect fit. The modest rosey shade 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 shade is a modest way to liven things up – great for completing a very clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much 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 tiny details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing option. Warby Parker Xmas

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than others, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is timeless. The Daisy is an clever take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic glasses will only complement your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom.

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and dispatched through a series 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 material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as selling the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens style variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that desire completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those with an extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $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 shields your lenses from daily wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also have different lens design choices, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

Warby Parker sells 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 able to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145, which can be considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Xmas
