Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a huge leap, it paid off. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, well designed, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Hudson

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way possible. If you want a refined look, this shape is a excellent option. Warby Parker Hudson

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they give the impression of being almost invisible from far away and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this might be the perfect choice. The faint rosey hue 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 hue is a modest way to freshen things up – ideal for achieving a very put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more easygoing option. Warby Parker Hudson

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a classic form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to supplement 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 style is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only complement your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour 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. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Hudson

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently built and sent through a series 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 scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens style variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for people who desire completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They shift from completely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along with any optical purchase. 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 could choose from the following:

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

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker intriguing 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 give away a pair to some person in need. They saw a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by aiding people access glasses to be able to see.
