For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. These days, glasses are supposed to complement your persona without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re needing to change your style, get a pair for a special event, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Illustrations

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to offer prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it paid off. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops aren’t dull and clinical. They’re sleek, stylish, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout purchasers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Illustrations

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during 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 option. Warby Parker Illustrations

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they appear more or less invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal pick. The modest pink shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a very put-together appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  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 tiny details 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 alternative. Warby Parker Illustrations

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than others, 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 a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless glasses will only heighten your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need 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 love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Illustrations

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the business removes the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. 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 with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a number of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that desire absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray 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 price of the frames!

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

But if you want a higher quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those who 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 around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for all those with an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is convenient that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which is considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Illustrations

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median 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 is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their key missions as a organization is to actively work on lowering its harm on the environment. The organization is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker appealing to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by helping people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
