Warby Parker Burke Review

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

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not boring and clinical. They are sleek, attractive, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most faithful buyers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a time when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Burke Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you want a refined look, this shape is a great choice. Warby Parker Burke Review

Louise-Birch-Tortoise

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they appear virtually invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal fit. The slight rosey hue offers them a little something extra.

Eugene-Narrow-Rose-Crystal

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a modest way to freshen things up – great for accomplishing a very clean appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more carefree option. Warby Parker Burke Review

Percey-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday man or woman 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 insane – only a few extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

Welty-Whiskey-Tortoise

 

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we desire to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic glasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

Daisy-Jet-Black

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour makes use of tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Burke Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but since 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 is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a sequence of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens style options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that want absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They change from completely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker includes 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 prefer a high quality lens, you may select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a high prescription since they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for those with an especially high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain because of 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! Along with scratch resistance, they produce polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the site starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Burke Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price point around $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their main missions as a organization is to proactively work on decreasing its impact on the environment. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker intriguing to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by assisting people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
