For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, unbearable frames. Now, glasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your pizzazz.

Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your look, get a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Online Eyeglasses 2016

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first organization to offer prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge risk, it was worth it. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, tastefully designed, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard clients. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a span of time when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this structure is a perfect option. Online Eyeglasses 2016

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they look more or less invisible from afar and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not want your frames taking over your face, this may be an excellent choice. The subtle pink tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for accomplishing a very clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more chill choice. Online Eyeglasses 2016

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern spin on a classic shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than some, 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 ability to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Online Eyeglasses 2016

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its competitors, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens style choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women who want absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a high prescription as they are around 20% thinner 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 especially strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension caused by reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses 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 purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the site being $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Online Eyeglasses 2016

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price around $120. Again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

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

Eco-friendly

The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by assisting people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
