For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, ill-fitting frames. Nowadays, glasses are expected to match your character without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker International

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are polished, stylish, well designed, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard customers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they seem to be more or less invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal fit. The modest 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 colour is a subtle way to freshen things up – great for completing a very put-together look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot 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 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 distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree alternative. Warby Parker International

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to worry 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 few extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern spin on a classic form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable 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 large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever spin on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only complement your sophisticated and modern style.

Daisy-Jet-Black

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker International

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and sent through a number of quality inspections. When you order, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design options. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They alter from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those who have a high prescription since they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive design series on the site being $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker International

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price about $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business as well. One of their main principles as a company is to actively work on minimizing its effects on the ecosystem. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the environment by tracking 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 appealing to clients 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 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 problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by aiding people access glasses to be able to see.
