Now, glasses are supposed to match your persona without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that 1 frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or simply to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Prescription Glasses

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They are polished, trendy, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal clients. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a time when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way possible. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a great choice. Prescription Glasses

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they look more or less invisible from a distance and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames taking over your face, this may be an ideal fit. The faint rose tone offers them a little something extra.

Eugene-Narrow-Rose-Crystal

  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 achieving a very put-together look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing choice. Prescription Glasses

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than others, but not so large 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 an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your polished and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find 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.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Prescription Glasses

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 same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and sent through a number of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for people who want completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on gloomy days.

Warby Parker gives 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!

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

But if you desire a higher quality lens, you can opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an exceptionally strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also great that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest series on the site beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which is classed as middle range in the market. Prescription Glasses

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price around $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they donate a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from around the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by assisting people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
