For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, unbearable frames. These days, glasses are expected to match your character without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re seeking to change your persona, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker 2016

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to market prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a huge risk, it paid off. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, chic, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker 2016

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way conceivable. If you like a refined look, this structure is a fitting option. Warby Parker 2016

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People desire them because they seem to be virtually invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames covering your face, this might be an excellent fit. The faint pink shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for completing a very put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more carefree option. Warby Parker 2016

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good choice 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 loud – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished 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 traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker 2016

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently built and sent through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is made 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 always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for people that like absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

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

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a strong prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although 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 extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates 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 UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly design series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker 2016

The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price about $120.

Warby Parker Gives Back

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