For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, unbearable frames. These days, eyeglasses are expected to complement your identity without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your flair. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you are wanting to change your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Roland Review

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge risk, it was worth it. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, attractive, well decorated, and fun. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Roland Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

Louise-Birch-Tortoise

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they look nearly invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t prefer your frames covering your face, this may be an excellent pick. The modest pink tone gives them a little something extra.

Eugene-Narrow-Rose-Crystal

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a modest way to freshen things up – ideal for completing a more clean appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more chill option. Warby Parker Roland Review

Percey-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly 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 style of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a typical form. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than others, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These timeless glasses will only heighten your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Roland Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched 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 your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who like absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those with an especially strong prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

Scratch resistance – This safeguards your lenses from everyday wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of 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 design options, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive design series on the website starting at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which is viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Roland Review

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations as well. One of their fundamental principles as a company is to actively work on lowering its effects 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 tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker intriguing 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 found a need that people from around the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by aiding people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
