For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for large, unbearable frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your flair. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame doesn’t in reality fit all. 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 look. Whether you’re looking to revamp your style, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Griffin

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to offer prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive risk, it paid off. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, fashionable, well decorated, and fun. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal buyers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People love them because they give the impression of being nearly invisible from afar and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this might be an excellent fit. The slight rose tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a subtle way to freshen things up – ideal for completing a very smart look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Griffin

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a quintessential form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger 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 potential to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we wish to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic glasses will only heighten your refined 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 need to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Griffin

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the prices are 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 with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and sent through a number of quality checks. 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 infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens style choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for people who want completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They change from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker includes polycarbonate lenses along with any optical purchase. 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 prefer a higher quality lens, you could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a strong prescription since they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those with an exceptionally high prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension because of reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the website being $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Griffin

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price about $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their key missions as a company is to proactively work on minimizing its harm on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by aiding people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
