For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, awkward frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to match your personality without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re wanting to change your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Queen

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription glasses online and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, tastefully decorated, and pleasant. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Queen

  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 glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Queen

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they appear to be just about invisible from a distance and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect choice. The subtle pink color 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 colour is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for completing a very chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Queen

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a typical shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do exactly 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. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your elegant and modern 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 need to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Queen

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently built and sent through a sequence 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 infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. 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’re packaged up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens style options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for people that like completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They shift from completely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help 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 minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also great that various lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest series on the website beginning at $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be classed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Queen

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price point about $120. Once more, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their effects on the ecosystem by tracking 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 which makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they give away a set 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 matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by aiding people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
