For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, unbearable frames. These days, glasses are supposed to match your persona without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re seeking to change 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. Eyeglasses Lenscrafters Canada

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first organization to provide prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive leap, it was worth it. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are polished, fashionable, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal customers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a time when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Eyeglasses Lenscrafters Canada

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a great option. Eyeglasses Lenscrafters Canada

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they look almost invisible from far away and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this may be an ideal choice. The slight rose color gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a modest way to freshen things up – ideal for completing a more sleek appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a slightly more easygoing choice. Eyeglasses Lenscrafters Canada

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current 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 eye-catching keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than others, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an clever take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Eyeglasses Lenscrafters Canada

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the business removes the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and pushed through a series of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens style options. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a high prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest collection on the website starting at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as middle range in the market. Eyeglasses Lenscrafters Canada

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price point about $120. Again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to people 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 donate a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by assisting people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
