Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to market prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, fashionable, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful buyers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a span of time when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this structure is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Pd Photo

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they give the impression of being nearly invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal pick. The faint rose hue gives 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 liven things up – great for completing a more sleek look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look 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 tiny elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing option. Warby Parker Pd Photo

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white border 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 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 eye-catching keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth figure 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 simple. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade 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 almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Pd Photo

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the company removes the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently put together and sent through a number of quality tests. When you order, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually checked and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens style variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for people who want completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses along with any optical sale. They are some of the most lightweight and impact-resistant lenses; and they come with the purchase price of the frames!

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a strong prescription as they are up to 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 all those who have an extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain from reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

They also have different lens design alternatives, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the site starting at $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145, which is classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Pd Photo

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business as well. One of their fundamental principles as a company is to proactively work on decreasing its effects on the Earth. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker appealing to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they give away a set 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 issue. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
