Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to market prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that an enormous risk, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They are sleek, fashionable, well designed, and enjoyable. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Podcast

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they give the impression of being virtually invisible from afar and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this may be an excellent pick. The modest pink tone gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for completing a more put-together appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Podcast

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, 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 classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These classic glasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Podcast

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and pushed through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They transition from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses with any optical purchase. 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 prefer a higher quality lens, you can select 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, although they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

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

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

Scratch resistance – This shields your lenses from daily wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest design series on the site beginning at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145, which is viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Podcast

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price point around $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their main missions as a business is to actively work on lowering its influence on the ecosystem. The organization is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by helping people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
