For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, unbearable frames. Nowadays, glasses are expected to match your character without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker understands that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re looking to revamp your style, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Tortoise

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that an enormous risk, it was worth it. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t dull and clinical. They are polished, stylish, tastefully designed, and enjoyable. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a period when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact 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 want a refined look, this design is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Tortoise

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they seem nearly invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this may be an ideal pick. The faint rosey tone gives 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 tone is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for completing a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width glasses 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 circular and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Tortoise

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin 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 noticeable keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are 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 a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we desire to complement outfits, not detract or distract 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 artful take on the quintessential 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 ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need 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 repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Tortoise

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but since the company removes the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and pushed through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that want absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on gloomy days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

But if you desire a high quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at zero additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension from 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! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is able to sell you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145 at present, which is viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Tortoise

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price about $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their primary principles as a organization is to actively work on decreasing its harm on the ecosystem. The organization is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear manufacturer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker appealing to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by aiding people access glasses to be able to see.
