Now, glasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your own style.

Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of inexpensively priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are seeking to change your look, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Duckworth Review

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear 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 massive leap, it paid off. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a period when the public judged glasses 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 exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this structure is a great option. Warby Parker Duckworth Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear to be more or less invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect fit. The modest rose shade 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 subtle way to freshen things up – great for achieving a very clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more carefree option. Warby Parker Duckworth Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the eyeglasses 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 contemporary take on a quintessential form. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we wish to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic glasses will only add to your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not 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 quite impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Duckworth Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then gently put together and dispatched through a series of quality inspections. 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 material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as selling the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens style variants. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract UV rays. They shift from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on overcast 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 price of the frames!

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people that have a strong prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 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? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

They also provide different lens style 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 prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly collection on the website being $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Duckworth Review

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their fundamental missions as a company is to actively work on lowering its influence on the Earth. The organization is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they give away a pair to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
