Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to sell prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive leap, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its 1st 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’re sleek, attractive, well designed, and pleasant. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted shoppers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Fisher

  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 until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you want a refined look, this design is a perfect option. Warby Parker Fisher

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear to be virtually invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an excellent choice. The slight rosey shade gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a modest way to freshen things up – ideal for achieving a very sleek look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 small details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Fisher

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern spin on a quintessential form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, 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. The Eastern Bluebird Fade hue incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Fisher

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the business removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and sent through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who want absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract UV rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

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

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a high prescription as they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although 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 all those who have an extremely high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that different lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the site being $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Fisher

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price point around $120. Once more, this is deemed middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their key principles as a company is to actively work on decreasing its effects on the ecosystem. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people access glasses to be able to see.
