Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that an enormous gamble, it was worth it. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, fashionable, well designed, and fabulous. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout customers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

  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 from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you like a refined look, this shape is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Holcomb Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they seem to be more or less invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal pick. The faint pink tone gives 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 shade is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for completing a very sleek appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more easygoing option. Warby Parker Holcomb Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic glasses will only add to your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Holcomb Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently put together and pushed through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as selling the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens design options. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you desire a higher quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those who have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides 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 provide different lens style alternatives, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.
