Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are wanting to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Dahl

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it succeeded. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, stylish, well designed, and enjoyable. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most faithful customers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a period when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Dahl

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they seem almost invisible from a distance and go with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t want your frames burying your face, this may be the perfect fit. The slight rosey tone offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a very sleek 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 even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more carefree choice. Warby Parker Dahl

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than others, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic glasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is 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. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Dahl

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that like absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses with any optical order. They’re some of the most light and impact-resistant lenses; and they come with the purchase price of the frames!

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those with an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension from reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

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

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Dahl

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

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to clients is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
