For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. These days, glasses are supposed to match your personality without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your flair. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re desiring to revamp your look, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Annex

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive gamble, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, stylish, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Annex

  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 during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a great option. Warby Parker Annex

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People want them because they seem to be nearly invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this might be the perfect choice. The modest pink color gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a subtle way to liven things up – perfect for achieving a very smart look.

  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 even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Annex

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse design of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Annex

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much 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 compound. The glasses are then gently built and dispatched through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens style options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who desire absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

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

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people that have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer 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 recommended for those with an especially strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension due to reflections and reduces 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 gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer you all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the site beginning at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Annex

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price point around $120. Again, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their primary principles as a company is to actively work on reducing its harm on the ecosystem. The organization is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by assisting people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
