For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, unbearable frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to complement your personality without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker knows that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are seeking to change your look, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Kill Screen

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that a massive gamble, it paid off. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not boring and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, tastefully decorated, and fun. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard clients. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Kill Screen

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Kill Screen

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they look nearly invisible from a distance and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect choice. The subtle rosey 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 colour is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a very chic appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing alternative. Warby Parker Kill Screen

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a quintessential form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to complement 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 design is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you find 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 pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Kill Screen

Construction

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

Lens Options

As well as having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens style variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that like completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

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

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a high prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the website starting at $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Kill Screen

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price point about $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their key principles as a business is to proactively work on minimizing its impact on the ecosystem. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by assisting people access glasses to be able to see.
