Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, attractive, well decorated, and fun. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard buyers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a span of time when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Warby Parker Tate 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 same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way achievable. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a excellent option. Warby Parker Tate Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they seem to be almost invisible from afar and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t prefer your frames taking over your face, this might be the perfect fit. The faint rosey tone offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to liven things up – great for achieving a very smart appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a rather more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Tate Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a quintessential shape. 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. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than others, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly 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 sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic glasses will only add to your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty 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 hue incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Tate Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a series of quality checks. When you order, 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 coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for people that prefer completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

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

But if you prefer a higher quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an especially high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain from reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens style options, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest design series on the site being $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145, which is classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Tate Review
