Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that an enormous leap, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its 1st 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 are sleek, attractive, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when the public judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way possible. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Townsend

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they seem to be almost invisible from a distance and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect choice. The subtle rose color gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a subtle way to freshen things up – great for achieving a very clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 small aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing option. Warby Parker Townsend

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a classic shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These classic glasses will only heighten 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 have to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Townsend

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are made in China and built on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then gently built and dispatched through a sequence of quality inspections. When you order, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused 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 carefully examined and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens style options. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They adjust from completely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

But if you desire a higher quality lens, you can opt 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, but they are priced at an extra $30.

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

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

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain caused by reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

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

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the site being $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145 at present, which is considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Townsend
