Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are wanting to revamp your look, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Somerset

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that an enormous risk, it paid off. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

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

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a fitting option. Warby Parker Somerset

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People want them because they seem more or less invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect choice. The subtle rosey shade gives 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 hue is a subtle way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a very put-together appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

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

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a classic 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. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than others, but not so large that they cover 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 eyeglasses, we prefer to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do precisely 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 sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Somerset

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently put together and pushed through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re boxed 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 has two lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for people who like absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract ultraviolet rays. They change from completely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker includes 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 prefer a high quality lens, you can opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription as they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens design alternatives, 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 inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest series on the site being $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Somerset

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

Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by tracking 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 factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to customers 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 sold they donate 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 matter by aiding people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
