For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, uncomfortable frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your personality without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame does not in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you are desiring to change your look, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Meatpacking

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it succeeded. 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’re sleek, stylish, well designed, and fabulous. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal shoppers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a time when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Meatpacking

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Meatpacking

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they appear more or less invisible from afar and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t like your frames taking over your face, this may be an excellent choice. The faint rose color 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 color is a modest way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a more smart appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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’s the little aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing option. Warby Parker Meatpacking

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not 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 straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite 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 shade makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Meatpacking

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames 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 many of its rivals, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and pushed through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as providing the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that desire completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract UV rays. They adjust from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses with any optical sale. 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 want a high quality lens, you can opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 recommended for all those who have an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker gives 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 relieves eye strain due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly series on the website beginning at $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Meatpacking

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

Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker alluring to clients is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to someone 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 issue. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
