For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. Now, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your persona without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your own style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker is aware that 1 frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every design. Whether you are seeking to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or simply to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Kimball Review

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive leap, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are polished, chic, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted clients. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a period when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Kimball Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you like a refined look, this design is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Kimball Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People desire them because they look just about invisible from far away and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal fit. The faint rosey tone gives them a little something extra.

Eugene-Narrow-Rose-Crystal

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for accomplishing a more clean 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 come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree option. Warby Parker Kimball Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find 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 impressive.

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 colour combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Kimball Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are 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 compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and sent through a series of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, 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 finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens style options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for people that prefer absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract ultraviolet rays. They shift from completely clear inside to dark gray outside, 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!

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an especially high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain due to 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 provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

They also have different lens design options, 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 rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also handy that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest collection on the site being $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145, which can be classed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Kimball Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price around $120. Once more, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their fundamental missions as a company is to actively work on reducing its influence on the Earth. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they donate a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by aiding people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
