Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it was worth it. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, tastefully designed, and enjoyable. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a span of time when the public considered 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 same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from 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 fitting choice. Online Eyeglasses Upload Photo

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they seem more or less invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this might be an ideal fit. The modest rose tint 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 hue is a subtle way to liven things up – great for accomplishing a more clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small aspects that make all the difference: 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. Online Eyeglasses Upload Photo

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic choice for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than some, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color 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 hue makes it quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Online Eyeglasses Upload Photo

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a series of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. 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 wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract UV rays. They alter from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you desire a high quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a high prescription as they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for all those who have an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest design series on the website starting at $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be classed as middle range in the market. Online Eyeglasses Upload Photo

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price about $120. Once again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their primary missions as a business is to proactively work on reducing its impact on the Earth. The organization is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to clients 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 sold they give away a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by helping people access glasses to be able to see.
