For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, uncomfortable frames. These days, glasses are expected to complement your identity without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of reasonably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are desiring to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or simply to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Images

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to market prescription glasses online and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive leap, it paid off. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They are polished, attractive, well decorated, and enjoyable. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful customers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a great choice. Warby Parker Images

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they give the impression of being more or less invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t like your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal choice. The subtle rosey tone 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 subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for completing a very chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem 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 tiny details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Images

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only complement your sophisticated and modern 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 have 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 are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Images

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are much 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. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a sequence of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens style variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that prefer absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

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

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

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at 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 exceptionally strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that different lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest design series on the site starting at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which can be classed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Images

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price around $120. Once more, this is considered mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

One of their primary principles as a company is to actively work on reducing its effects on the environment. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker intriguing to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they donate a set to some person 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 matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
