For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. These days, glasses are expected to match your identity without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your style.

Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are looking to change your look, get a pair for a special event, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Used Prescription Glasses Frames

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it paid off. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are polished, chic, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard clients. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a time when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Used Prescription Glasses Frames

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a perfect choice. Used Prescription Glasses Frames

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear virtually invisible from afar and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames taking over your face, this may be an excellent choice. The faint pink shade 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 hue is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a very clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more chill choice. Used Prescription Glasses Frames

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a quintessential 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. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless glasses will only complement your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find 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 pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Used Prescription Glasses Frames

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the company removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and pushed through a number of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for people who prefer completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can choose from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer 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 certain coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain from reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce 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.
