Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design.

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it paid off. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, chic, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Warby Parker Domain

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this shape is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Domain

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People love them because they seem to be almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not want your frames covering your face, this might be an excellent pick. The slight rosey hue 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 hue is a modest way to freshen things up – great for accomplishing a very put-together look.

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 come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Domain

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t 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 crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current take 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. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than others, but not so large that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement 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 classic. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, 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. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Domain

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as many of its competitors, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully built and sent through a series of quality checks. 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 anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that desire completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you desire a high quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an exceptionally high 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 zero extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain due to reflections and minimizes 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 provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

They also offer different lens style options, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also awesome that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the site beginning at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Domain

When a pair is sold they give away a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue.
