Warby Parker Sullivan Review

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first organization to offer prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal clients. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a time when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Sullivan Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you want a refined look, this design is a fitting option. Warby Parker Sullivan Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they give the impression of being just about invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not want your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent pick. The slight rose hue offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a very sleek look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Sullivan Review

Percey-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse design of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a few extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in glasses, 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 striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Sullivan Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the company 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 rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully put together and sent through a series of quality checks. 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 scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens style options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that like absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They alter from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you could choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a high prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

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

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

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

They also offer 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 low prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly series on the site starting at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which is viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Sullivan Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price about $120. Again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Shipping and Support Policy

Warby Parker provides free shipping and returns if you reside in the US or Canada.

They have a 30-day, no-questions-asked coverage for each of their eyeglasses, as well as a 1-year guarantee for all their lenses where they will replace your scratched lenses for free over the first 12 months.

The minimum shipping duration is very reasonable at 5 business days for non-prescription sunglasses. The maximum duration is a bit of a wait for single-vision prescription sunglasses and progressive prescription eyeglasses at 10-12 business days.

Warby Parker has the best customer service on our opinion. Customer care representatives were friendly, helpful, and attentive as they answered all of our inquiries. You can reach the company by phone, email or live chat. The site is very easy to navigate through as well. Warby Parker even has an FAQ section and order guide that will help you discover the right glasses to match your preference.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business. One of their fundamental principles as a company is to proactively work on reducing its effects on the ecosystem. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
