For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, awkward frames. Now, glasses are supposed to match your personality without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are wanting to revamp your style, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Youtube

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that an enormous risk, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its first year of operations.

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

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Youtube

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you like a refined look, this design is a great option. Warby Parker Youtube

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they seem more or less invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal pick. The modest rosey tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a modest way to liven things up – great for achieving a very clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot 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 elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more carefree option. Warby Parker Youtube

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday man or woman who does not like to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a classic form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless glasses will only add to your polished and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find 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 quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Youtube

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and sent through a series of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens style choices. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker includes polycarbonate lenses along 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!

warby-parker-lens-options

But if you want a higher quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for those with an exceptionally strong prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

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

Scratch resistance – This shields your lenses from everyday wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain caused by reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest design series on the site starting at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Youtube

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

They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker appealing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a pair to someone in need. They found 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 working to address this matter by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
