Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference.

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to market prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it paid off. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t dull and clinical. They’re sleek, fashionable, well designed, and fabulous. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout clients. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a time when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Edgehill

  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 glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a great option. Warby Parker Edgehill

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they give the impression of being virtually invisible from a distance and go with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames burying your face, this might be the perfect pick. The faint pink hue 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 colour is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for completing a more put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more chill choice. Warby Parker Edgehill

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style 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 eyeglasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses 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 effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Edgehill

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since 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 is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently built and dispatched through a series of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is made 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 come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that prefer completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although 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 especially high prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain from reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is great that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the site starting at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Edgehill

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

Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker appealing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they donate a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from around the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by assisting people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
