For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, uncomfortable frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing its practicality or hijacking your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame does not in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re seeking to revamp your style, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker D

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear business by being the first organization to offer prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge leap, it was worth it. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online during its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, well decorated, and fabulous. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a time when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they appear to be almost invisible from a distance and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this may be the perfect pick. The subtle pink color 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 hue is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a more smart appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a slightly more chill alternative. Warby Parker D

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need 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 repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker D

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and sent through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who desire absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They transition from completely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses with any optical order. 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 could select from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for all those who have an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

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

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

Scratch resistance – This secures 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! Along with scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is able to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly collection on the site beginning at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145, which is viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker D

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price around $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people 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 principles as a business is to proactively work on reducing its influence on the environment. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker appealing to customers is that they are very 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 pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by helping people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
