For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, uncomfortable frames. These days, glasses are supposed to complement your persona without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker knows that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re seeking to revamp your style, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Quality 2018

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to provide prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your front door. While many considered that an enormous gamble, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, well designed, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard buyers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a time when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Quality 2018

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses 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 till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this structure is a great choice. Warby Parker Quality 2018

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they give the impression of being more or less invisible from far away and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent choice. The subtle rose tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a moderate way to freshen things up – ideal for achieving a very clean appearance.

  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 is the small aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a rather more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Quality 2018

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than some, 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 power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These timeless glasses will only heighten your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Quality 2018

Construction

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

Lens Options

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who desire completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They alter from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

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

But if you want a higher quality lens, you can select from the following:

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates 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 produce polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

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

Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing.

Warby Parker Gives Back

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