Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to offer prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, stylish, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal purchasers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Toronto Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this shape is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Toronto Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they appear more or less invisible from a distance and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal choice. The faint rosey hue gives 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 colour is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for achieving a very smart appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Toronto Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement 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 design is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless glasses will only complement your elegant 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 need to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade colour makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker Toronto Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully built and pushed through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for people who desire absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

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

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses along with any optical purchase. They are 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 high quality lens, you could pick from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension due to 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! Along with scratch resistance, they produce polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive series on the site being $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145 at present, which is viewed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Toronto Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price point around $120. Again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, 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 appealing 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 purchased they donate a set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
