Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous gamble, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They’re sleek, chic, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout customers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a period when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker Keene Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a fitting option. Warby Parker Keene Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they give the impression of being almost invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an excellent fit. The subtle rose color 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 modest way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a more put-together appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree option. Warby Parker Keene Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These classic glasses will only add to your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is 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 like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Keene Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and pushed through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for people who desire absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

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

Warby Parker includes 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!

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% slimmer 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 who have an extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

They also have different lens style choices, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest series on the site starting at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which is viewed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Keene Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price about $120. Once more, this is considered middle 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. One of their key principles as a company is to proactively work on decreasing its harm on the Earth. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker alluring to clients 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 purchased they donate a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
