For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, uncomfortable frames. These days, eyeglasses are expected to match your personality without sacrificing its practicality or taking away your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of inexpensively priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re looking to change your look, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Tortoise Shell

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it succeeded. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, attractive, well designed, and enjoyable. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful shoppers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Tortoise Shell

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a perfect option. Warby Parker Tortoise Shell

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People love them because they give the impression of being more or less invisible from afar and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent choice. The faint rosey tint offers 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 color is a subtle way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a more put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Tortoise Shell

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to supplement 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 spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only add to your refined and contemporary 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 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 repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Tortoise Shell

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and sent through a sequence of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new set is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated 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 to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as having the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens style options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that want completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They change from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a high prescription since they’re around 20% thinner 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 suggested for those with an especially strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain because of reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes 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 price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is convenient that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive series on the site being $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is considered as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Tortoise Shell

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price about $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.
