For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, uncomfortable frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are expected to complement your character without sacrificing its practicality or taking away your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker understands that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re seeking to change your style, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Bethesda

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a huge risk, it succeeded. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They’re polished, chic, well designed, and fun. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a chapter when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Bethesda

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Bethesda

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they seem to be almost invisible from far away and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent fit. The faint rosey 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 shade is a subtle way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a more sleek appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Bethesda

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of the glasses 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 modern variation on a classic shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than others, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your polished and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty striking.

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 shade makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Bethesda

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set 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 material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for people that desire absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They alter from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a strong prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer 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 recommended for those with an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

They also provide different lens style alternatives, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest design series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which is classed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Bethesda

Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by assisting people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
