Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, well decorated, and fabulous. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Raleigh Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this structure is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they give the impression of being almost invisible from far away and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t like your frames covering your face, this might be the perfect fit. The slight rosey tone 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 color is a subtle way to liven things up – great for accomplishing a very smart look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little 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 slightly more relaxed option. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than some, but not so large 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 an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to complement outfits, 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 classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless eyeglasses 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 eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses 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 almost all of its competitors, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as providing the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design variants. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses with any optical order. They are some of the most lightweight 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 perfect for people that have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at zero additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension because of reflections and lessens 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 offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

They also offer different lens style alternatives, 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 low price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is able to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive design series on the site beginning at $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Raleigh Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price about $120. Once again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients 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 purchased they give away a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter.
