For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, ill-fitting frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing its functionality or taking away your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker acknowledges that 1 frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Store Review

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to market prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it succeeded. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during 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 dull and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker Store Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Store Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they appear to be nearly invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t want your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal pick. The modest pink tint gives them a little something extra.

Eugene-Narrow-Rose-Crystal

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a modest way to liven things up – excellent for achieving a more sleek appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Store Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we desire to supplement outfits, 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 classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

Daisy-Jet-Black

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s 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. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Store Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully put together and sent through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for people that desire absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They adjust from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along with any optical purchase. They’re 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 higher quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people who have a strong prescription as they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to 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 reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive collection on the website starting at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Store Review

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