Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first company to provide prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They’re sleek, chic, well decorated, and enjoyable. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal buyers.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way possible. If you like a refined look, this shape is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Toronto Reviews

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People like them because they give the impression of being virtually invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not want your frames taking over your face, this may be an excellent fit. The subtle rose shade gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a subtle way to freshen things up – ideal for completing a more clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree alternative. Warby Parker Toronto Reviews

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we desire to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only complement your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are 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 base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Toronto Reviews

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the business removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently built and dispatched through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new set is built 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 eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design variants. They are:

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

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

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

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a high prescription since they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension because of reflections and lessens 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 offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

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