For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, ill-fitting frames. These days, eyeglasses are expected to complement your character without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your flair. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker is aware that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your look, get a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Ipo

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it paid off. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during 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 stores are not dull and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal customers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Ipo

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way possible. If you want a refined look, this design is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Ipo

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People desire them because they appear nearly invisible from afar and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this might be an ideal pick. The slight pink shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a modest way to liven things up – excellent for achieving a very smart look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing option. Warby Parker Ipo

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a typical form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless glasses will only complement your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

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 color combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Ipo

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a series of quality inspections. When you order, a new set 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 coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for people who prefer absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you can choose from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at zero additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension from reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

They also offer different lens design choices, 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 company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly series on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Ipo

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The least expensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price around $120. Once more, this is considered mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations as well. One of their key principles as a organization is to proactively work on lowering its influence on the ecosystem. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker appealing 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 sold they give away a pair 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 problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by aiding people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
