For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, unbearable frames. Now, eyeglasses are supposed to match your character without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your own style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker understands that one frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are looking to change your look, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Stanford

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to market prescription glasses online and send them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it succeeded. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, well designed, and fun. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way possible. If you desire a refined look, this design is a fitting option. Warby Parker Stanford

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they seem more or less invisible from far away and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal choice. The slight pink shade 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 freshen things up – excellent for completing a more chic appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more chill alternative. Warby Parker Stanford

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your polished and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, 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 love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Stanford

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the company removes the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and sent through a series of quality checks. When you order, 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 material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women who prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

Warby Parker provides 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 higher quality lens, you can choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a high prescription since they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain caused by reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also convenient that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive collection on the website starting at $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145, which is considered as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Stanford

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

Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by aiding people access glasses to have the ability to see.
