For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, uncomfortable frames. These days, glasses are supposed to match your identity without sacrificing its practicality or taking away your own style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s evident that Warby Parker is aware that one frame does not in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are desiring to change 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 United

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re polished, chic, tastefully decorated, and fun. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal shoppers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way possible. If you want a refined look, this structure is a excellent choice. Warby Parker United

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they seem just about invisible from far away and go well with a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t want your frames burying your face, this may be the perfect choice. The slight pink color 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 subtle way to freshen things up – great for accomplishing a more smart appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more relaxed choice. Warby Parker United

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to supplement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your sophisticated and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find 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.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade hue makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker United

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, sourced 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 because the business removes the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and pushed through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as selling the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They change from completely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

However, if you want a high quality lens, you could choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people that have a high prescription since they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an extra $30.

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

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

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

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

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

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

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price around $120.

Another feature that makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a pair to someone 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 issue.
