For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, ill-fitting frames. Nowadays, glasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of inexpensively priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re needing to change your look, get a pair for a special event, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker 2017

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first organization to market prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that an enormous gamble, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t dull and clinical. They’re sleek, attractive, well designed, and pleasant. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a chapter when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker 2017

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way possible. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a great option. Warby Parker 2017

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they give the impression of being just about invisible from afar and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal pick. The faint pink tone 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 colour is a subtle way to freshen things up – great for accomplishing a very put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re 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 pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing choice. Warby Parker 2017

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker 2017

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs 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. The glasses are then carefully assembled and pushed through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They alter from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, 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 those who have an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension because of 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! Along with scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145 at present, which is viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker 2017

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

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing 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 purchased they give away a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
