For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. These days, glasses are expected to complement your identity without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker acknowledges that 1 frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are needing to change your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker In Store Experience

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that an enormous risk, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, attractive, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted purchasers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker In Store Experience

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you want a refined look, this shape is a fitting choice. Warby Parker In Store Experience

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they look virtually invisible from a distance and go with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent choice. The modest pink color 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 shade is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a more clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree choice. Warby Parker In Store Experience

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation 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 notable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth idol 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 effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we wish to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade hue combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker In Store Experience

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently built and dispatched through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for people who want completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

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

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you could choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for those with an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

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

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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 style alternatives, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive collection on the site starting at $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 In Store Experience

Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. 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 the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by aiding people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
