Nowadays, glasses are expected to complement your character without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your style, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Town Center

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the first company to sell prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a huge leap, it was worth it. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are polished, trendy, well designed, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard buyers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a time when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker Town Center

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this shape is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Town Center

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they seem to be almost invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t like your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal choice. The modest pink hue offers 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 shade is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for completing a very sleek look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot 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 distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a rather more chill choice. Warby Parker Town Center

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the ability to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find 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 hue makes it quite 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 color makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Town Center

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the business removes the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and sent through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for people who want absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They transition from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on cloudy days.

Warby Parker gives polycarbonate lenses with any optical order. They are some of the most light 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 may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

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

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at zero additional cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also great that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive series on the site being $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Town Center

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