Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re seeking to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Hardy

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it succeeded. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, attractive, tastefully designed, and fun. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal clients. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Hardy

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way possible. If you like a refined look, this structure is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Hardy

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they give the impression of being almost invisible from afar and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal pick. The slight pink shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a very put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more carefree choice. Warby Parker Hardy

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday man or woman who does not want 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 crazy – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your polished 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 pretty striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Hardy

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business removes the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new set is assembled 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 come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for people who like absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They alter from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

However, if you want a high quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a strong prescription as they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 recommended for those who have an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at zero additional payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest design series on the site being $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145, which is considered as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Hardy

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that 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 bought 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 matter. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by helping people access glasses to have the ability to see.
