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

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and send them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge risk, it paid off. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not stodgy and clinical. They are polished, stylish, well designed, and pleasant. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this shape is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Glasses

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they appear to be nearly invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not want your frames covering your face, this might be an excellent choice. The slight pink tint offers 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 colour is a subtle way to liven things up – great for accomplishing a more smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a rather more carefree option. Warby Parker Glasses

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of these eyeglasses 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 current 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. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than some, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Glasses

Construction

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

Lens Options

In addition to providing the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens design variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for people that like completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They change from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you can select from the following:

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

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain caused by 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 provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

They also provide different lens design options, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses.
