Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of inexpensively priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are needing to revamp your look, get a pair for a special event, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Upload Picture

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to provide prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that an enormous risk, it was worth it. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are polished, attractive, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout customers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a period when people viewed eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a fitting option. Warby Parker Upload Picture

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they appear just about invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal pick. The modest rosey shade gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a moderate way to liven things up – excellent for achieving a more chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

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

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. 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 sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless glasses will only complement your refined 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 have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Upload Picture

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company removes the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens style options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for people that desire completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

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

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

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you can select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those who have a strong prescription as they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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