For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to match your personality without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame does not in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re looking to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to offer prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge risk, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t dull and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a fitting choice. Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear more or less invisible from a distance and go with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not want your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect choice. The faint rose tone offers 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 moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a very clean look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree choice. Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation 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 eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we desire to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the business removes the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and sent through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts 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 which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re packaged 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 eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for people who desire completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They alter from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost 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 especially high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain from reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest design series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is classed as middle range on the market. Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price point around $120. Once more, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

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

Warby Parker has the best customer support on our opinion. Customer support representatives were friendly, helpful, and attentive as they answered all of our queries.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their fundamental missions as a business is to actively work on lowering its impact on the Earth. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their influence on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They’re working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers 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 set 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 trying to address this matter by helping people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
