Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first company to market prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, well decorated, and fun. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a period when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Durand Sunglasses Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Durand Sunglasses Review

Louise-Birch-Tortoise

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People want them because they seem to be more or less invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this may be the perfect choice. The faint pink shade gives them a little something extra.

Eugene-Narrow-Rose-Crystal

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses 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 more chic look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot 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 aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more relaxed option. Warby Parker Durand Sunglasses Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger 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 look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only complement your polished and modern style.

Daisy-Jet-Black

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade hue combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Durand Sunglasses Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully assembled and dispatched through a sequence of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new set is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually checked and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that want completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

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

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an extra $30.

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

Scratch resistance – This secures your lenses from daily wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain caused by reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest design series on the site beginning at $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is viewed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Durand Sunglasses Review

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing to people 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 purchased they give away a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by assisting people access glasses to have the ability to see.
