Warby Parker Monocle Review

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to sell prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge risk, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, well designed, and pleasant. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout clients. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a time when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Monocle Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you desire a refined look, this shape is a great option. Warby Parker Monocle Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they appear to be nearly invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not want your frames covering your face, this may be an excellent choice. The subtle pink tone 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 shade is a subtle way to liven things up – great for completing a more smart look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is 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 differences make the Percey a rather more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Monocle Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

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 bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Monocle Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the company removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently built and dispatched through a series of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens style variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that want completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along 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

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people who have a strong prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain from 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! Along with scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly collection on the site starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145 at present, which is considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Monocle Review

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their key missions as a organization is to actively work on decreasing its effects on the ecosystem. The business is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, 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 people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
