For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, uncomfortable frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to complement your identity without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Tate

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses online and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that an enormous risk, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this structure is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Tate

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they appear almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames covering your face, this might be an excellent fit. The modest rose hue 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 subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a more smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more chill choice. Warby Parker Tate

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t 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 insane – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern variation on a typical shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than some, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to complement clothing, 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 classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you find all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need 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’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Tate

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are made in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then gently built and dispatched through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has two lens design variants. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They adjust from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those who have a strong prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an extremely high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at no additional cost:

Scratch resistance – This guards your lenses from everyday wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain because of reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive collection on the site beginning at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Tate

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

Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing to people 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 bought they donate a set to some person 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 glasses to be able to see.
