Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They are polished, chic, well designed, and pleasant. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Eleanor

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might 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 fashionable way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a excellent option. Warby Parker Eleanor

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they look just about invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent fit. The faint rose color gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a very clean appearance.

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 come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing alternative. Warby Parker Eleanor

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these glasses 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 modern variation on a classic shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement clothing, 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 clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

Daisy-Jet-Black

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you find all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need 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 love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Eleanor

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently built and sent through a series of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who prefer completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They alter from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you could choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people that have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an extremely high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at zero extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly design series on the website starting at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145 at present, which is classed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Eleanor

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price around $120.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations as well. One of their key principles as a company is to actively work on reducing its harm on the environment. The business is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker intriguing to people 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 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 matter by assisting people access glasses to have the ability to see.
