Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge leap, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, stylish, well designed, and fabulous. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout customers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Oakbrook

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent pick. The subtle rosey 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 moderate way to liven things up – perfect for completing a more chic look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a slightly more easygoing option. Warby Parker Oakbrook

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your refined and modern 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 need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Oakbrook

Construction

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

Lens Options

In addition to having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for people who desire completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from completely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you desire a high quality lens, you can select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a high prescription as they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an extremely high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension because of reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive series on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Oakbrook

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price about $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations as well. One of their key principles as a organization is to proactively work on minimizing its impact on the environment. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have access 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.
