For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to match your persona without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that 1 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 offer something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re looking to change your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Cool Prescription Sunglasses

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge gamble, it was worth it. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not boring and clinical. They are polished, attractive, well designed, and fun. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout clients. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a period when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Cool Prescription Sunglasses

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a great choice. Cool Prescription Sunglasses

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they appear virtually invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t like your frames taking over your face, this may be an excellent pick. The subtle rose tint gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for completing a very clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are 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 curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing option. Cool Prescription Sunglasses

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses 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 variation on a classic shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the ability 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 polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated 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 is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue 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 incorporates tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Cool Prescription Sunglasses

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its competitors, but since 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’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and dispatched through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for people who like completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They alter from completely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses with any optical purchase. 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

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $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 extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension because of reflections and lessens 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 offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

They also offer different lens style alternatives, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that different lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest series on the site beginning at $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is viewed as mid-range in the market. Cool Prescription Sunglasses

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price around $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by assisting people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
